Placement Assessments

Foreign Language Placement Assessment

Non-credit placement assessments for French and Spanish are given at each Orientation Session. These assessments determine appropriate course level placement. If you have any questions about this assessment, please contact the Foreign Language Department at (518) 564-2829.

English Placement Assessment

Students must take the English Placement Assessment unless they have transfer credit for the Written Expression requirement equivalent to ENG 101 College Writing II. Students must complete the two-semester, Written Expression requirement (ENG 100 College Writing I & ENG 101 College Writing II), unless they are eligible to enroll in ENG 101 as a result of the English Placement Assessment.

It is extremely important that students register for ENG 100 in their first semester, unless they are eligible to take ENG 101 as a result of the Placement Assessment. Questions about this requirement should be addressed to the English Department, (518) 564-2134
