During each registration period, placement testing in English and mathematics is given for students new to the university. Results of these tests help identify present skill levels and aid in selecting appropriate courses for initial enrollment.

The following guidelines have been developed:

  1. English and math placement is determined first by ACT or SAT score and then, if needed, a placement test. For more information, please refer to University College Placement information.
  2. If the placement test results indicate the student needs developmental course work, certain courses must be completed before registering for college level classes. The academic advisor will aid the student in registering for the appropriate classes.
  3. First-time college students must complete any necessary placement tests before meeting with the academic advisor.

*Transfer students with earned credit in mathematics and English need not take these tests.
