Academic Placement Testing Requirements

  1. Academic Assessment

    It is essential that all new undergraduate students begin their academic careers with a strong foundation. To ensure this, UIW places students into the appropriate math and English courses based upon test scores submitted with the application. To view the UIW course placement policy, visit the Admissions website at Students who have been placed into MATH 0318 and MATH 0319 may choose to take the math challenge exams at the Learning Assistance Center. These assessments determine readiness to succeed in the University by identifying students' academic strengths and any needs that must be addressed to gain full benefit of a UIW learning experience

  2. Competence in English
