In an effort to ensure you are registered in the appropriate courses, placement/skills assessments are offered – and some required – by certain departments. Students are encouraged to contact their designated academic advisor to discuss class registration and during this time the advisor should let you know if you need to take either the Chemistry Placement Exam, the Foreign Language Placement Test, the First-Year Writing Placement, or the Math Placement Assessment. All tests are available online.
To see a list of academic advisors, visit https://newstudents.dasa.ncsu.edu/advising/.
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 (listed below) and copy the DRO service provider so a verification email can be sent.
