Your ACT/SAT scores, Advanced Placement (AP) credit, and any college-level course work you have completed will determine your placement testing requirements. You must arrange to have the official scores and official transcripts sent to Ohio State.
There are three placement tests you may be required to complete prior to attending an orientation program.
Math Placement Testing:
Online - Required if “Math B Test Required” or “Math D Test Required” is listed on your To-Do List.
English Placement Testing:
Online - Required if “English Test Required” is listed on your To-Do List.
Foreign Language Placement Testing:
On-Campus - Optional but highly recommended if you have completed 2+ years of Spanish, French, or German while in high school.
Online Testing Window:
- Summer Admits - ASAP
- Autumn Admits - May 1 through May 29
The earlier the better. Should you fail to complete placement testing within the online testing window or receive a “U” math score, you must contact the Orientation & Placement Testing Office to make arrangements to take the test in person. Please provide yourself with an environment that will give you uninterrupted time and an atmosphere conducive to testing. You can only take the online test once!
Students in need of disability services may elect to complete placement testing in person. Contact the Office of Disability Services to make testing arrangements.
