The test for placement in Reading and Math is Accuplacer, a computer adaptive test administered at the University. Writing placement is determined by the SAT writing score.
Who Must Take the Tests
Rowan University requires that the following students take the tests:
Students will be tested only after they have been admitted to the University. Students who already hold a bachelor's degree need not be tested. Students enrolled in a bilingual or English as a Second Language (ESL) program will not be tested until they have completed such a program. If you have any questions about taking these tests, call Mark Matalucci at (856) 256-4263.
Purpose of the Tests
Now that you have been admitted to Rowan University, you will need to take placement tests. These tests are designed to provide information about your skills in the English language and mathematics. The test results will be used, along with other information, to place you in the courses appropriate to your level of preparation. In some cases, those may be non-credit basic skills courses.
