Placement Testing

Placement tests are designed to provide information about students' individual skills in the English language, mathematics, and foreign languages. Test results will be used to place students in the courses and sections appropriate to their level of preparation.

First-Year Students

All newly admitted first-year students will take Rutgers University's placement tests within 30 days of accepting admission. For information on placement test for first-year students, click here.


Transfer and Continuing Students

Transfer students entering Rutgers without an equivalent English writing course or math course will also be required to take placement tests. Your transfer evaluation will include information about any required placement testing.

English and Math placement tests for New Brunswick transfer/continuing students are offered throughout the year. Students needing to complete placement testing as noted on their transfer evaluation must make a reservation online.
