  • Placement pre-testing is an important step in the orientation and the registration processes. The results will be used to place you in the right courses during registration, so that your classes match your academic plan and needs.

    You’ll receive more information about the tests, including when and how you’ll take them, once you’ve registered for orientation. Below is some brief information about the tests.

    Everyone must take the math pre-test before orientation, though some majors are also required to retest at orientation in a more formal setting.
