Placement Testing

In an effort to ensure you are registered in the appropriate courses, placement/skills assessments are offered – and some required – by certain departments such as math, English, and foreign languages. Information about these assessments can be found here:


* Students that have a disability and need testing accommodations for placement tests should first register with the Disability Resource Office.  Once registered, students should email the placement exam contact person and copy the DRO service provider so a verification email can be sent.
