Prior to New Student Registration students will have the opportunity to
take online placement exam as well as take some on campus the morning of
New Student Registration.
Placement tests are utilized for evaluation of your ability to be
placed in course work at UF. Placement in a course with the
appropriate level of challenge is vital to your success in the
classroom. By having the results of the various tests, academic
advisors are better able to advise for class registration.
The placements tests are optional for students (unless otherwise required by your major), but students are strongly encouraged to take them.
