Placement tests are designed to provide information about students' individual skills in the English language, mathematics, and world 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.
