UW-Eau Claire requires students to take UW-System Placement tests 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 and German courses (unless you have been out of high school for three or more years).
The only exception is for students who have prior work in the subject.
Note: Students wishing to take Japanese or Chinese must take a locally developed placement test. Contact Academic Testing (715-836-5522) to schedule the test.
