You will be scheduled to take academic placement exams during Orientation. This assists with placement in general studies courses.
With few exceptions, JWU requires all new students to undergo academic assessment in math, sentence skills and a reading essay.
Assessments are MANDATORY before classes begin in the fall.
Students who have transfer/AP credits ONLY for English Composition must attend testing.
It is recommended that you brush up on your math, computer and
sentence skills prior to testing, as your test scores will determine
your fall class schedule. Placement testing materials are available.
Exemptions from Testing Students who have been awarded transfer/AP credit for JWU course ENG1020 are exempt from the Essay & Sentence skills test.Students
who have been awarded transfer/AP credit for JWU courses MATH1002,
MATH1010 or MATH1020 (or any college level Algebra or higher level math
course) are exempt from the Math test.
Disabilities If you have a documented disability and are requesting testing accommodations, forward your documentation at least 2 weeks prior
to your scheduled assessment to ensure appropriate accommodations can
be arranged. No accommodations will be provided without appropriate
documentation or if documentation is submitted on the day of assessment.
