Placement Testing

All incoming students should schedule an appointment to take Ohio University Southern placement tests. Placement tests are computerized and focus on math, writing, and reading. These tests are designed to assist students and their advisors with course selection.

Placements tests are not timed. Typically, the tests take about three hours to complete. Immediately upon completion of tests, individual results are explained to each student, who may then set up an appointment with an academic advisor for course scheduling.

Placement tests are offered on Fridays at 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM. Students wishing to take placement tests must stop by or call The Learning and Assessment Center, (740) 533-4596, to schedule an appointment. Additional test times are offered prior to the start of each quarter. Individual test times may also be arranged for students who are unable to attend the scheduled test times.

Please remember that you must present a picture ID at the testing session and you must know your social security number.
