Placement Exams

You can verify if you need to take the Math or English placement exam by reviewing the requirements below. You will need to take the exam if you want to take a higher level class than your current score permits.

If you are enrolling in any Spanish course for the first time at WSU, regardless of level, you will need to take the Spanish placement exam.

After you take the Math or English exams, your scores can be viewed online in your myWSU account; select Banner Self-Service > Student Records > Test Scores. Spanish exam results will display immediately after you complete the test, and you will be able to enroll in the class within 24 hours.
