Placement testing

About placement testing

Placement testing in English, foreign languages and math helps us determine which course in a given sequence you should begin with at Ohio State. Your placement testing requirements are determined by your ACT or SAT scores, Advanced Placement credit, and college-level course credit.

We encourage you to bring a copy of these scores and transcripts with you to orientation, but you must also have official scores and transcripts sent to the following address:

The Ohio State University
