Read the New Student’s Guide to Registration

Math and English Placement Tests
Taking a placement test enables us to determine which courses you need in order to progress and succeed in your studies. Students will need to contact their academic advisor to see if they need to take placement tests. Prior to making an appointment for a placement test, you will need the Testing Authorization form from your Academic Advisor.  Get everything you need to know about Placement Testing from your Academic Advising and Testing Services.
