Placement Assessments

At UC Clermont we are committed to your success! The placement test is part of that commitment and will assess your skills in various areas to determine the best courses for you to begin a successful academic experience.

Placement Assessment consists of the portions below. Most incoming students need to complete all portions but some students are able to opt out of a placement based on minimum ACT or SAT scores or transfer credit. See score exemptions to determine which placements you need to complete. It will not hurt you to complete a placement even if you could have opted out. So if you are unsure, take them all!
