Mathematics at Clackamas Community College

No matter your future plans, you'll likely need to understand core math concepts to get there. At CCC we provide an encouraging, supportive environment to help you be successful. Our dedicated instructors make it their goal to make math less scary, by placing you in the right math class and by providing support services like free tutoring.

Start with the right math class for you

The first step to being successful with college math is proper placement, and CCC offers a unique way to determine which class is right for you. At CCC you can either take the traditional placement test, or you can decide to work with a placement advisor, who works with you to assess your skills.
