Placement Testing

The purpose of placement testing is to assess your current abilities and to determine which courses will be most beneficial to you as you begin your studies at Benedictine University.

All incoming freshman students are required to take placement tests in math. Placement tests in foreign language may be required depending on your chosen major or if you intend to take foreign language classes at Benedictine. All incoming transfer students are required to take the math placement test if they have not already completed a math course in college. If you have AP scores or dual credit, you should still take the placement tests. Before taking any exams, we advise that you prepare.

You will be eligible to take the placement tests three business days (excluding weekends and holidays) from today’s date. The mathematics test takes between 30 and 45 minutes and each foreign language test takes 60 minutes. Ideally, you should complete all of your testing in one sitting; however, you have up to two (2) days to complete them all. Please schedule a block of time accordingly.

Once you have begun your classes here at Benedictine University, you are no longer allowed to take the Math Online Placement test. If classes have begun and you have no current math placement result, please see the Math Learning Specialist in the Academic Support Center.
