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.
The English portfolio is optional and only available for freshmen entering in the fall. Those not submitting the portfolio take an English placement test at orientation.
Depending on courses already taken or interest, students may be assigned or elect to take a
French placement test. Students that meet the criteria may
receive course credit for their Spanish oral proficiency level.
