Placement Testing 

Determining placement testing needs for FRESHMEN:
Math placement testing needs are determined by a student’s individual SAT and/or ACT scores.

  • Students are required to take the math placement testing if they score below 500 on the SAT math score or below 19 on the ACT math score.
  • Students who are not required to complete math placement testing will be placed into a math course based on their major and individual math score on the SAT/ACT.

English placement testing needs are determined by a student’s individual SAT and/or ACT scores.

  • Students are required to take English placement testing if they score below 530 on the SAT reading score or below 19 on the ACT reading score.
  • Students who are not required to complete English placement testing will start in ENG 101: English Composition.

Foreign language placement testing is determined by the language taken in the student’s high school.

  • Students who have taken Spanish, German, or French will be required to complete foreign language placement testing at Marian University. However, if the grades on the high school transcript are low, testing may not be required.

Determining placement testing needs for TRANSFER STUDENTS:
Transfer students with 30 or fewer transfer credit hours will be required to complete math and/or English placement testing unless they have equivalent transfer coursework which would fulfill the English and/or math requirements. Transfer students with 30 or more transfer credit hours are not required to complete any placement testing.

Foreign language placement testing is not a required for any transfer student, though students are encouraged to speak with their academic advisor regarding the foreign language placement exam if they have any previous experiences speaking French, German, or Spanish.
