Do I need to take a placement test before I register for classes?

Most new freshmen are expected to take a placement test before they meet with an academic advisor to plan their class schedules. Incoming freshmen with sufficient SAT scores can be exempt from sections of the placement exam or the entire test. For critical reading or writing exemptions, students must score at least 520 on each of those sections of the SAT. For math, the SAT minimum is 530. Transfer students who have either not taken or not passed English 101 and/or a first year non-remedial math course must take the Placement Test before registering.
