Step 2) Take the WI Placements Tests in English and Mathematics (if needed)

  • All first year students are required to either take the University of Wisconsin English and Math Placement Tests or have college credit in English and Math. 
  • Students who have already taken the Wisconsin Placement Tests do not need to take them again. 
  • If you have college credit in any of the following English courses, you do not need to take the English Placement Tests: ENGL 090; 101; 111; 112.
  • If you have college credit in Math it may not be adequate preparation for the major you are entering; your first year advisor will advise you on whether you need to take the Math Placement Test.
  • If you have not taken the tests please contact the UW-Stout Counseling Center at (715)232-2468 to make arrangements to take the placement tests before the January 15, 2016 Registration and Orientation day.
