Registering For and Taking Placement Tests

Transfer students will be notified by their Advising, Retention, and Career Center (ARCC) advisor if placement tests are needed. We currently have online options for testing ahead of the spring 2023 semester.


Our online tests are not proctored. You must register for these exams using your UWEC email, and you can do so here.

You will need to log in with your campus credentials to complete the registration form before taking the exam. Within two business days of registering (but more likely within a few minutes), you will receive an email from Scantron with a username and password for accessing the exams. 

  • To take the tests, your web browser must be able to accept cookies, JavaScript, and pop-up windows. We recommend you use the most up-to-date version of your web browser. If you leave or log out of a test before finishing, you may log back in and the system will remember how much time was remaining.
  • Upon completing a test, you must submit the exam in order for us to receive your scores. If you forget to submit your exam, you should be able to log back into the system to submit.
  • Please note: It takes at least one week for tests to be scored and sent to UW-Eau Claire. 

Outside of our Math, English, and Language placement exams, we also offer these additional placement exams for interested students:

  • Both the Japanese and the Chinese Placement exams are available through Canvas. Students need to e-mail to request access to either course to complete these exams.
  • Students will need to complete an eform to request an American Sign Language (ASL) placement exam with CSD. 

If you have any questions or concerns about the placement testing process, please contact, or reach out to your academic advisor.
