The Beginning of your First Year

Placement Testing

School of Arts & Sciences Class of 2020

In preparation to begin your undergraduate education, we ask that you join us on campus for an Academic Planning & Advising Day Program to meet with advisors and request courses for the fall semester. Plan also to join us for a fun and educational overnight summer orientation program.

Rutgers Placement Test in English and Mathematics can be taken online. Please see below for more information.

The Rutgers Placement Tests determine the courses you are eligible to take in writing, math and foreign languages. All incoming first year students at SAS are required to take placement testing (see exemptions below).

Information about placement testing, including sample questions, can be found at


  • Students with a Critical Reading SAT score of 600 or higher or an ACT English score of 30 or higher (by the January 2016 test) are exempt from completing the English portion of the testing and will automatically be placed into Expository Writing.
  • Students who completed the AP exam in English Lang/Comp, English Lit/Comp, or Calculus AB or BC with a score of 4 or 5 in junior year, do not have to complete the placement test in that subject, but must arrange to have the AP scores sent to Rutgers from the College Board. Go to:
