California Community and Private Colleges

Annual licenses grant community and private colleges in California the right to administer MDTP tests to their students.  The tests are normally administered by mathematics departments, testing and assessment officers, matriculation departments, or other student service officers as part of the matriculation process to place students in mathematics courses. MDTP tests have been validated and approved for use until 2019 by the CCCCO.

The fee is $400 per year if a school's fall unduplicated head count is less than 5,000 students.  The fee is $800 per year if a school's fall unduplicated head count is 5,000 or more students. Licenses are for the term July 1 through June 30. The CCC standard license requires community colleges to report their test usage to MDTP twice a year. Three-year licenses are available at a reduced cost for limited use by Learning Disability Specialists (DSPS).

MDTP makes every effort to make our tests affordable to colleges and universities. Our fee is based on the enrollment size of the college. MDTP may waive the first year's fee for new users if tests are being administered for the purpose of collecting data to validate cut scores and placement criteria.
