After the test has been completed and scored, an adviser will review the results with the student and offer suggestions for appropriate courses.

- The ACCUPLACERPlacement (Native English Speakers)
- ESL Placement (Non-Native English Speakers )
- Arithmetic Placement test (Health Professions and Biology Students ONLY).
