Step 1: Placement Testing

Mathematics and Writing:
All first-year students are required to take placement tests in mathematics and writing, unless exempt. Your adviser will be able to provide you with more information about these placement tests (see Step 2). You can also find Study Guides for the mathematics exam at www.pace.edu/placementtesting
Step 2: Advising
Make an appointment to meet with your academic adviser. Your adviser will be able to answer any questions you may have and provide you with additional information about placement testing. Please meet with your adviser prior to Orientation.
Your adviser is determined by the college or school in which your major is housed.
