Incoming Students: Course Placement

Course Placement allows us to evaluate your skills in math, reading, and writing, to make sure you register for classes that give you the best chance to succeed.

Most new students are required to take Course Placement before you will be able to register for classes. If you took the ACT or SAT, you may be eligible to waive course placement and register for classes.

If you want to take advanced subject courses, take our advanced placement tests. See all available tests.
