Information for Academic Advisors (last updated March 25, 2019)
Placement testing for 2019-2020 will open in mid-April rather than May 1st.
There will be some changes in PNP policies for the new freshmen and transfers enrolling next year. Please check back.
The Chinese Proficiency Exam is available during business hours at the Testing Center on South Neil Street. To schedule an appointment, students can contact Melissa Minarik at least 5 business days before their desired test date. The cost is $25. Please help your students understand what your College's and what their academic program's language requirement is. Students who wish to take the Chinese Proficiency Test have four versions to choose from:
Both chemistry placement and Rhetoric placement use ACT and SAT scores.
Many students take one or both tests multiple times.
Test-based credit will not be taken away.
Remember, it is not permitted for currently enrolled undergraduate students to take the ACT or SAT now, as college students, in an attempt to earn RHET 105 credit. This policy appears in the Academic Catalog under "Degree Requirements: Written Communication Requirement" for undergraduate students. The ACT and the SAT, and the AP and IB exams too, are written for and statistically normed on high school students. Although test scores will be evaluated for course placement and possible proficiency credit whenever they are received -- for example, it is okay for a junior or senior to send in their AP scores that were never sent when they first enrolled as a freshman -- the tests themselves have to have been taken prior to enrolling in college courses.
