Assessment Center

Welcome MVC Mountain Lion to Assessment and Orientation Services!


Mission Statement

Assessment and Orientation Services at Moreno Valley College and Ben Clark Training Center are here to help first-time college students make a successful transition to college by completing all or some of the college matriculation process: orientation, assessment, counseling and registration. The overall goal is to assist students from entry, to their first days of class, and beyond.


Support and Services

Student Orientation

There are two ways students can complete their orientation:

  1. Attend a self-guided online orientation: Walk through the student orientation at your own pace. You must log in with your name and student ID number to receive credit for your online orientation.
  2. Attend an digital online orientation via Zoom: Meet with Assessment staff to assist you in completing your orientation, complete your first semester education plan and meet with an educational advisor. If your registration date has passed, we can even help you register for your next semester!

Course Placement

With California Assembly Bill AB 705 colleges are required to take into account high school coursework, high school grades, and high school grade point average when determining math and English placement upon enrollment.

Your English and math placements are already completed if you are:

  • First time College Student
  • High school graduating senior
  • Graduated high school within the last 10 years

Login to your WebAdvisor to view your placements!

Please note: If you do not have placements on file, complete the assessment survey.
