Placement Tests

Placement Testing Updates During Campus Closure:

Students normally complete their first year assessment tests on campus in Tivoli Room 347, but under the current conditions very limited face-to-face testing services are available until further notice. Students do have an option to complete placement tests using a virtual proctoring service. Access to this service requires a high-speed internet connection and a webcam. Please read below for additional details.

New students who are unsure which placement tests are necessary can meet with their advisor via SSC Navigate, or contact their advisor via email.
