Do I need to take placement tests?
print icon

Once students are admitted to Cornell, they will be contacted by the advising department of their undergraduate college or school and informed of any placement tests that may be a part of new student orientation. Placement examinations are administered to determine a new student’s appropriate level of study within a discipline. On the basis of examination performance, students may be placed in the subject’s introductory course; be exempted from the introductory course and be allowed to take a more advanced course; or be exempted from the introductory course altogether and still receive credit. Students are then free to take more advanced coursework.
