Undergraduate Admission

Pace University is excited that you will be joining our community for the Fall 2019 semester. Orientation is a crucial part of the undergraduate admission process. In addition to beginning the course registration process, Orientation helps new students learn all about Pace's services and programs and meet future classmates.

Placement Testing

Pace requires placement testing in writing and math for all new students. The possible exemption from placement testing for new students is based on the review of your math and English courses transferred from other universities and/or AP scores/courses. In some cases, we also require placement testing in Modern Languages when a student is not transferring college credits for a language and is planning to resume study of a language studied in high school for at least two full years.

Details on placement testing for both first-year students and those students with transfer credit will be sent to you once we receive your tuition deposit. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please call:
