Chemistry, Math & Foreign Language Placements

For All Students Arriving in Fall 2020

Placements enable our faculty and staff to enroll students in courses that match their skill level in a given subject. Placements have no effect on your grades at Ursinus and you will discuss your placements with your adviser during May Orientation.

Since your courses will be planned soon after depositing, incoming students must complete their placements as soon as possible if not already completed. All students must complete the Foreign Language and Mathematics placements. If you intend on taking chemistry at Ursinus, please also complete the Chemistry placement.

Each placement will take approximately 30 – 60 minutes and the Foreign Language placement involves an audio component. Please ensure that your name, email, and date of birth are entered correctly so your placements are appropriately recorded.
