Placement Testing

UW-Eau Claire requires students to take UW-System Placement tests (unique to Wisconsin) prior to enrolling in:

  • Courses fulfilling the University Writing Requirement -- Writing 114, 116, 118.
  • All math and statistic courses and other courses with a math prerequisite.
  • Spanish, French, German, Chinese or Japanese courses (unless you have been out of high school for three or more years).

The only exception to taking placement tests are for students who have prior work in the subject.
