In fall semester 2014, the placement exam will be offered on Thursdays at noon and Fridays at 3 PM in OSS 225 (Please note: the last day for the placement test for Fall 2014 will be Dec. 19th at 3 PM). 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.
J-term testing will begin on Monday, January 5th. During J-term, the test will be offered according to the following schedule: Mondays 6 PM to 9 PM, Tuesdays-Thursdays 11 AM to 2 PM and 6 PM to 9 PM, and Fridays 11 AM to 2 PM.
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.
