Chemistry, Math & Foreign Language Placements

For First-Year Students Arriving in Fall 2021

Placements enable our faculty and staff to enroll students in courses that match their skill level in a given subject. Placements have no effect on your grades at Ursinus and you will discuss your placements with your adviser prior to the start of the semester.

All first-year students must complete the Foreign Language and Mathematics placements. If you intend on taking chemistry at Ursinus, please also complete the Chemistry placement.

Each placement will take approximately 30 – 60 minutes and the Foreign Language placement involves an audio component. Please ensure that your name, email, and date of birth are entered correctly so your placements are appropriately recorded. Questions can be directed to the Institute for Student Success via email or by calling (610) 409-3400.

Please consult your admissions portal for individual links to the Placements. 

For Transfer Students Arriving in Fall 2021

Incoming transfer students should discuss which placements are necessary to complete with their adviser.
