Placement Test

Placement Test

English/Writing Courses

The University administers an online placement test for placement decisions about the appropriate writing course, either WRIT 100/WRIT 100G OR WRIT 101 / WRIT-101G, for all first-time undergraduate day division students, including international students. This online placement test MUST be completed BEFORE a student comes to campus for his/her selected Summer Orientation session.

Students who have earned an associate degree, who have been enrolled in another institution for thirty continuous credits, or who have earned college credit for Writing Seminar 1 are exempt from writing placement testing ONLY if their credits have been evaluated BEFORE coming to their designated Summer Orientation session.

All first-time freshmen who have not completed the online test and transfer students who have NOT had their writing credits evaluated will be required to take the writing placement test during summer orientation, which will delay the receipt of their semester course rosters.

Math Course(s)

The University places first-time undergraduate day division students in mathematics courses according to math SAT scores, major (as designated in the official University acceptance letter), as well as responses to a self-screening trigonometry questionnaire.

Students who have earned AP credit in mathematics will be placed in mathematics courses according to the AP Credit table listed in the “Credit for Prior Learning” section of this publication.

Students who have received transfer credit in mathematics will be placed considering these credits in addition to the other stated criteria.

The university will administer a math placement test to all international students who have not taken the SAT or ACT.

First-time undergraduate day division students’ verbal SAT scores will determine their placement into Introduction to Textual Analysis (ITXA-100).

The University will administer a reading placement exam for international students who have not taken the SAT to determine their placement into Introduction to Textual Analysis, (ITXA-100).
