6. Register for and complete placement tests

All incoming students are required to take placement tests. Tests must be completed at least ten days before your scheduled Orientation date unless taken on campus. 

For Fall 2024:

Complete your tests in person at UWEC – Barron County

In-person placement tests are held on our Rice Lake campus and are proctored by a staff member. You must register for in-person placement testing that is taking place at least 10 days before your Orientation date. Please note that it takes about one week for tests taken in person to be scored and sent to UW-Eau Claire. We highly recommend that you take them as soon as possible to ensure you're able to register for your classes on time. 

The following dates are available for in-person testing: 

Thursday, June 27th from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm - Register here.

Tuesday, July 30th from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm - Register here

Monday, August 26th from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm - Register here.

Complete your tests online
You may also take your placement tests online – click here to register. You will be asked to log in with your campus username and password to complete the registration form before taking the exam. Within two business days of registering (but more likely within a few minutes), you will receive an email from Scantron with a username and password for accessing the exams.

    • Please note that online options for testing are not proctored and require more processing time. We recommend taking the online placement test 10 to 14 days prior to your advising appointment. 
  • All students are required to complete the Math and English tests, and if you have had two or more years of French, German, or Spanish, take the placement exam for that language.
  • Transfer students without transferable college credit for English or Math will need to take UW System placement tests. Students can work with their advisor to determine if placement tests need to be taken.
