You will be required to take English and mathematics placement tests prior to registering as a freshman. Students whose scores on the English or mathematics placement test fall below institutional cutoffs will be considered high risk students and be required to participate in special programming.
The American College Test (ACT) or Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is required of all incoming University of Wisconsin freshmen. (ACT or SAT scores are not required for students over 21 years of age or special students.) The test will be used for academic advising, career planning, and placement test interpretation.
