The writing placement exam will enable your advisor to place you in the first-year writing course most appropriate for your ability.
If you have received equivalent credit for English 101 through college transfer or the Advanced Placement (AP) test in English, you do not need to take the writing placement exam. Honors College students do not need to take the exam.
The writing placement exam is offered online and must be completed at least 1 week before your orientation date.
The math placement assessment is an online exam designed to place you in an appropriate mathematics course.
All new students are required to take the test. (Students with college-level math credit may be exempt.)
The testing fee includes a 6-week review module, access to the exam, and up to 4 retakes. If you take the test more than once, WSU will use your best score.
