New Freshmen

Whether or not you are required to take the placement exams depends on which College you are going into, your academic background, and your intended program of study. Even if you have taken Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate tests in these subjects, you still need to take the placement exams because your AP and IB results won't come until later in the summer. Please complete your placement testing at least two weeks prior to your New Student Registration date.
