Placement assessments are important tools that help faculty advisors, academic support services, and you work together to schedule the best classes for you. Assessments are used to place you into courses that match your current and potential skills and abilities. You do not receive college credit based on your placement assessment results; however, we encourage you to complete the assessments that apply to you (e.g., a math placement assessment, writing placement assessment, foreign language placement assessment, and/or foreign language proficiency assessment) as soon as possible. You must complete the placement assessments that apply to you before you will be able to register for your first APU class in the corresponding subjects, such as math, writing, or foreign language. Completing the assessments that you need before your scheduled Preparing for APU event (when possible) will allow you the greatest freedom and flexibility when scheduling your semester courses.
