New Students

Incoming freshmen who attended an orientation but were unable to take a specific placement test can take it with no additional fee or paperwork by the last day to add classes of their first semester. If they would like to take a placement test after that date, new students must follow the process for continuing and transfer students.

Continuing and Transfer Students (Total Cost $40)

Continuing and Transfer Students must complete the following steps to register for a placement/credit exam(s):

  1. Contact your college for a "Request to Take Advanced Standing/Proficiency/Credit Exam" form. Approval from both your college and the department offering the course is required. 
  2. Report to the Office of the University Registrar in Room 112 Thomas Boyd Hall to be assessed a $20.00 fee.
  3. Report to the Office of Bursar Operations in Room 125 Thomas Boyd Hall to pay the fee.
  4. Return to the Office of the University Registrar in Room 112 Thomas Boyd Hall with your payment receipt in order to obtain a form required for registration.
  5. Report to the Office of Assessment & Evaluation in Himes 51 with the required form issued by the University Registrar. An additional $20 fee will be assessed and an admission ticket will be issued, which must be used for entry into the exam.
