English and Mathematics Placement

New freshmen entering the University of Wisconsin-Stout for fall 2013 must take the UW-System Placement Test in English and Mathematics. A foreign language test is not required, but is recommended if you wish to continue your study. Placement Tests can be taken at any UW campus. You can find more information here.

Youth Options or College Credit Earned in High School: If you took college credit in either math or English (or any other subject area) while still in high school make sure an official transcript from the post-secondary institution granting the credit is mailed to the UW-Stout Admissions Office, 124 Bowman Hall, Menomonie, WI 54751, to be added to your official record.

Transfer Students: Registration in any English and/or Mathematics courses you might still require for your major will depend upon credit earned in those subjects at your previous institution. The transfer equivalency report you receive from UW-Stout's Admissions Office will indicate whether transfer credit has been awarded in English (i.e. ENGL 101) and/or Mathematics (i.e. MATH 110). Note: MATH-XXX represents an undetermined skill level, so cannot be used for registration purposes, therefore you should take the Mathematics Placement Test.
