Placement tests assess your math and English skills to confirm you’re prepared to tackle your first-semester courses.
To ensure an equal playing field for all students, on- and off-campus accommodations are available for eligible students. Some examples include having extra time to take your test, testing at a limited distraction site, and working with a test reader. Check out Disability Services for a more complete list.
