Placement Testing

Welcome to IU Northwest! To make sure you are taking the appropriate classes for your major, we have placement processes for English, math, Biology, and Chemistry.

IU Northwest has adopted an updated math placement process. Math placement is determined through evaluation of the materials you provided to the University upon application. You will either be given a math placement or be required to take a math placement test. Once you are placed, you will find your math placement through ONE.IU in your Student Center.  Your academic advisor will discuss your placement level with you at your advising appointment.

English placement is available online through Canvas or follow the steps below for placement testing.

Depending on your major, Biology and Chemistry placement may also be required. 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@iun.edu.
