To make sure that students’ course selections build a solid foundation for their collegiate careers, many incoming students will participate in our placement testing program in English and mathematics.
If you score below 500 on the Writing and/or Mathematics components of the SAT (below 21 for ACT Mathematics and English), you will take one or more placement exams before you register for courses at UMM. Your results on these diagnostic tests will help you and your advisor select classes that best fit your current academic needs. You may take these tests during June Welcome Weekend or during Fall Orientation, or you may schedule a private session at your convenience by calling Carol Wolf at (207) 255-1264 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Since courses sometimes fill as students register for classes, taking these tests early ensures that you have a broad selection of courses to choose from for your first semester at UMM.
If you want to know more about these tests or would like to do some preparation for them, various online resources are available.
