All first-year students are expected to take placement tests in math and foreign language; some may wish to take optional tests in biology, chemistry, or calculus. Placement tests allow academic advisors to recommend the appropriate initial course for the student in these subject areas.
Placement tests for the following eight languages are available only online: Chinese, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Latin, and Spanish. These tests must be taken online before students come to campus. For placement tests in languages other than these, please contact the appropriate academic department or ask your advisor when you come to campus.
In addition, a math placement exam is also available online, and must be taken before coming to campus.
There is an IU Bloomington Online Placement Exam fee of $50and it covers math and foreign language online placement exams. The fee will be assessed and appear on a student’s bursar bill the first time a student takes an online placement exam and it will cover any additional such exams taken for the academic year.
