MATH READINESS TEST
All students are required to take the Math Readiness Test prior to Orientation (you won’t be able to register for any classes if you haven’t taken the test). Do not use a calculator or any reference materials, and do not get help during the test. We need to know your capabilities so we can advise you at course registration.
Approximate time: 45 minutes (20 questions)
FOREIGN LANGUAGE PLACEMENT (FLP) TEST
Students interested in studying any level of French, German, or Spanish must complete the Foreign Language Placement Test prior to Orientation (even if you have never taken a course in the language). Students who do not take the FLP will be disenrolled from any language course they register for.
Approximate time: 20 minutes
Course registration will be much easier (and quicker too!) if you have looked over degree requirements, course descriptions, majors and minors on your college’s website prior to Orientation. At Orientation you will have skilled staff and faculty members on hand to guide you through course registration, so being familiar with the options will enrich that experience.
