Beginning on August 28th, 2014 and continuing into fall semester, the placement exam will be offered on Thursdays at noon and Fridays at 3 PM in OSS 225 (Please note: the test will be offered as normal on Thursday, October 23, but will not be offered Friday, October 24 due to fall break). There is no need to make an appointment, but make sure that you arrive on time. The exam usually takes about 30 minutes, but can take up to 2 hours or occasionally more. Bring a pencil and scratch paper for scratch work. There is no need to bring a calculator, as the calculator that you can use will be provided.
Students are allowed to take the test once each semester, with summer counting as part of the fall semester and J-term counting as part of spring semester.
Not all students need to take a placement exam. You only need to take the exam if any of the following apply to you (Note: these cutoffs were updated in March of 2014. Students enrolled at that time who had already sent their test scores to UST will be placed under the old criteria; for more information about this, email email@example.com):
Results from the exam are available within 2 business days of taking the exam.
