The University of Akron uses placement testing to help determine the appropriate first course to take in the University of Akron’s course sequence. Your ACT/SAT scores and choice of major determine your placement testing requirements. Not every student will be required to take placement tests, as each student is evaluated on an individual basis.
Students will receive specific math, reading, writing, and computer literacy placement testing requirements via email no more than three business days after receiving the Advising & Registration Confirmation Email containing their orientation date. The email will be sent to all addresses on file, including the student’s UA email address. Placement exam(s) must be completed prior to the Advising & Registration program. Failure to complete any exam(s) prior to the program could result in a delay in course registration.
Foreign language placement tests are required for students with prior experience in a language they intend to study at UA. Incoming students will not receive an email regarding language placement testing, and should instead refer to the Foreign Language link below for information.
Please see the information below regarding specific tests and how to request accommodations for testing. If you are an incoming student and have questions regarding your placement testing requirement, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, student ID number (7 digits, no letters), and your specific question. If you are a currently enrolled student and have questions regarding your placement testing, please contact your academic advisor with your question.
