Placement Testing

The Rutgers Placement Tests determine the courses you are eligible to take in WRITING, MATH and FOREIGN LANGUAGES. All incoming first year students at SAS are required to take placement testing, with two exceptions:

1. Students with a Critical Reading SAT score or Evidence-Based Reading & Writing (EBRW) SAT score of 600 or higher or a score of 30 or higher on the English section of the ACT (Usage/Mechanics and Rhetorical Skills) are exempt from completing the English portion of the testing, and will be automatically be placed into Expository Writing.

2. Students who completed the AP exam in English (Lang/Comp or Lit/Comp) or Calculus AB or BC with a score of 4 or 5 in the junior year do not have to complete the placement test in that subject, but must ensure that the AP scores are sent to Rutgers.

Rutgers placement testing will now be administered online, beginning in March 2016. Only some foreign language exams (Italian, East Asian Languages, and African, Middle Eastern, and South Asian Languages) will continue to be administered on campus. Please check Placement Testing on the Enrollment Pathway for more information.
