As a new student, you may have to take one or more placement tests.
Your major may require completion of a math and/or chemistry assessment. The result of each assessment is used to enroll you in an appropriate math and/or chemistry course best suited to support your overall success.
The math and chemistry assessments are completed within Canvas, the university's learning management system. All placement assessments need to be completed prior to registering for fall classes. Instructions will be sent via email to students who need to complete one or more assessment.
