Undergraduate Admission

Orientation is a crucial part of the undergraduate admission process. You will receive a separate mailing regarding the orientation programs offered on your campus.  

After you have submitted your deposit, it is important that you register for orientation and prepare for any required placement testing. Registration will open in December. Please check back here in December as more information about Orientation will be provided.

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:
