  • ALEKS Mathematics Placement Exam - The math placement exam is required for all First-Year and Transfer students, unless you have already fulfilled your math requirements prior to coming to ASU or have transferred an equivalent prerequisite course for the ASU math course you intend to take. 
  • Accuplacer Exam - This is a placement exam for English composition courses. Admitted students who have not sent official ACT or SAT scores will need to take this exam. If you already have credit for ENG 101, ENG 102 or FYC MET (check your DARS report for an explanation of FYC MET), you do not need to take the Accuplacer Exam.
  • Second Language Placement and Proficiency Exams - If you plan to enroll in second language courses and have studied the language previously, take the placement exam to determine the appropriate course level, unless you have prerequisite transfer credit for the course you wish to take. For Spanish, you must take the placement exam, even if you wish to enroll in SPA 101. Only true beginners are eligible for 101-level second language courses. If you are already proficient in a non-English language and need to demonstrate this, see the proficiency exam section at the above link.
