Placement Tests

The university offers placement tests that evaluate the level of preparation of each student in mathematics, writing and foreign language. The score on the examinations are used to place the student in appropriate courses that best match his or her skills. The exams are used only for registration purposes, and carry no credit value. The preliminary score becomes invalid after two semesters.
 
Each exam tests the student's skills at the time the test is taken, and students are advised to study beforehand. Preliminary versions of the examinations are available, and all incoming students, including transfers, should take the preliminary placement examinations.
