Placement Tests

English Placement

In order to accurately place students into the correct English class, students who do not have SAT or ACT scores and/or have not taken EH 101 must take the Accuplacer English Placement Test. Please read the information below and schedule your test as soon as possible. Please give your admissions specialist a call if you have any questions.

Math Placement

Deposited students will be emailed instructions on how to access their Canvas student account. Once equipped with those instructions, take the Math Placement Test. Incoming students will not be able to register for any math classes at Brenau until they have taken this placement test.

Foreign Language Placement

Brenau University students must meet a Liberal Education Modern Language requirement by demonstrating at least the high beginner level of language competency at the 102 level. If you feel you would be able to “exempt” or place beyond the 101 level of this requirement by virtue of prior language learning or heritage speaker skills, please carefully read over the Modern Language policy statements in the Brenau Catalog. To expedite your registration process, you are encouraged to make placement or exemption testing arrangement prior to your Registration date.

Early Registration

Incoming freshmen are required to attend a registration event to meet with their advisor and register for classes before the start of the school year. This year we are offering two Early Registration dates – June 6, 2019 and July 16, 2019. Schedules for Early Registration will be available on approximately June 1, 2019. Students who cannot attend one of the Early Registration events will register for classes during R.O.A.R. in August. Also, be sure to take your Math Placement Test before your registration date (see below for details).
