Testing Information

There are five unique testing scenarios for first-time freshmen. Each test should be completed PRIOR to orientation.
It is important to note: there will be limited time to take a test offered during orientation, therefore, we highly recommend that local students contact the Office of Testing Services to schedule an appointment to take these exams prior to orientation.

Math Placement

Mathematics course placement is based on your highest ACT or SAT mathematics sub-score.
If you scored a 19 ACT or above in math, you are guaranteed placement in a credit-bearing course.

Foreign Language Placement*If you wish to continue studying a foreign language begun in high school, you must take a placement exam to determine your level of competency.  Information on all of our foreign language placement exams can be found here.
