Placement Testing

A variety of placement tests are available on-campus.

The UW offers on-campus placement tests in mathematics, chemistry, many foreign languages, and music history & theory.

Math placement tests will be offered in conjunction with on-campus A&O sessions (except for the Hybrid Part II on-campus A&O sessions on 8/21, 9/20, and 9/21). All other placement tests must be taken during regularly scheduled Testing Center hours

Note: The Chemistry Department recently created a chemistry placement exam required for placement into CHEM 142. Please see below for more information.

Check to see if you need a placement test by visiting the placement website. Also review how your AP/IB scores will transfer.
