Placement Testing

In order to place students into proper levels of course work, newly admitted students are required to take placement tests for English and Math. Depending on the student's major, Biology and Chemistry placement tests may also be required. Students may not register for classes until they have completed the English Placement test. While required to take a math course, the Math Placement hold will not prevent students from taking other courses. These placement tests are only for students admitted to Indiana University Northwest.

Please Note: In order to begin the placement testing process, you must have created your IU Account. If you are having problems with creating your IU Account, please contact the IT Support Center at (219) 981-4357 or [[iunhelp]].

For CASA Education Testing please contact Susan Goodman in the School of Education at (219) 980-6515 or [[sgoodm]].
