How to register for a placement test:

  • You should have received a letter containing information about the specific placement test(s) you need to take.
  • Please use the drop down box below to select a date and time that offers your required tests. Be sure to register for a session that includes ALL of the tests you will be taking. You can register for a session that includes both tests you need to take and tests you don't need to take. For example, if you need to test in Math and Reading only, you can register for a session that is offering all of the tests. However, if you need to take Math, Reading Comprehension and Language, please do not register for a session that only offers Math and Reading Comprehension.
  • Once you have registered for a session, you will receive an email confirming your date and time as well as the location of testing with a parking pass.

Writing Placement Test

Writing placement tests are offered at separate times from those listed below. Also, testing will be done off-site, most likely from your own home. Students will have a window of opportunity to complete the test and can be taken at any point during the specific time frame. If you are interested in taking this test, please email Dr. Patricia Lynne (, Associate Professor in the English Department. Once your name is added to the list, specific information will be sent to you in a separate email as the window to test gets closer. This correspondence will detail how and when to register for the test.
