If you plan to continue your studies in a subject listed below, you must take the appropriate exam or review the applicable information before registering.
Chemistry: Take the department's diagnostic exam. This is not a placement exam, so it may be taken after registration. It is, however, required for enrollment in the very popular study groups (PLTL) for General Chemistry.
College Writing 1 (L59 100): Most students will be assigned to take College Writing 1 in the fall or spring semester. Some students are required to take an online writing placement exam before they can register for their writing course. When you login to your account in WebSTAC, select Scores and Placements under Academic Records. If a WPE appears, a writing placement exam is either required or recommended. By June 1 you should have received notification for the requirement or recommendation with detailed instructions. If no exam is required or recommended, your assigned semester for College Writing 1 will be posted here. Additional information can be found on the College Writing Program website, or you may send questions to email@example.com.
