English and Math Placement Assessments

English and math skills assessments are required for undergraduate students prior to registering for any math or English courses (also see Exemptions below). The results of these assessments permit the University to place students in the appropriate math or English course for their skill level.

  • You should complete an assessment as early as possible prior to registering for courses. Placement results do not guarantee a reserved seat in any required courses.
  • Skills assessments are only required prior to registering for freshman English and math courses.
  • Students may register for any other courses for which English and math courses are not pre-requisites.
