JWU requires all new students to participate in an Academic Assessment in the areas of math and sentence skills. The results of all assessment activities will help generate an appropriate class schedule based on individual student skill levels and abilities.
Students should have completed the Academic Assessment while at New Student Orientation over the summer. Students unable to complete the Academic Assessment over the summer will be referred for testing upon arrival at Wildcat Welcome.
Academic Assessment MUST be taken prior to beginning Wildcat Welcome.
By not participating in the Academic Assessment over the summer or during Wildcat Welcome, a student’s commencement date may be delayed.
