Placement Tests

UNCW requires a math placement test and a foreign language placement tool.

The math placement test will be available to you during your January Orientation and the results will identify which math course would be appropriate for you to take at UNCW. Learn more about the math placement test. Different math courses are required for different majors. See what your major requires, or prefers, for your math course selection.

The foreign language placement test is available to you online. The Department of World Languages and Literature recommends students take the placement test as soon as possible. Learn more about the Foreign Language Placement Tool and take the placement tool.
