Did you know our Lead Coordinator at the La Plata campus was a Kid' and Teen College student, became a counselor, then an assistant coordinator, a teacher of our courses and then a coordinator.  That is dedication to our program.  Thank you to Sarah Massie for all your hard work.

2. Take the Work Keys Assessment Test

Students must go to the Testing Center to complete three Work-Keys® assessments: (1) Reading for Information, (2) Locating Information and (3) Applied Mathematics available in the Testing Centers on all three campuses of the College of Southern Maryland.  No test waiver is available.  The cost is $25.00.

Work-Keys assessments are required before you can register for the course.  FREE remedial training is available for those who do not meet minimum score levels.  The fee for re-testing any one of the three assessments is $25.00.  We strongly encourage interested students to test early.  Testing early will allow students to get an optimal schedule.
