• Fall First-Year Student Placement Day

    At this event, students will take a college placement test and complete an Academic Interest Form. This will assist the Academic Success Center in building your first semester schedule. Your first semester classes are based on your placement test results, academic major and your responses on the Academic Interest Form. After attending a Placement Day, an Academic Advisor will contact you with your course schedule and the results of your placement tests via email.

    Attendance at a Student Placement Day is mandatory for all new students. Lunch is included during our Placement Days that are paired with Parent Orientation.

  • Step 1: Sign Up for a Placement Day

    Students: Sign up for a Placement Day.

    Note: Students may register for only one event.

    Parents: Please sign up separately to attend Parent Orientation.

    Step 2: Placement Testing

    All new students take placement tests to determine math and writing courses at WSU. It is important to understand that the results of these tests will help shape your first semester. These tests must be completed in order for the Academic Success Center to build your first semester schedule of courses.

    Accuplacer Math and Writing are the tests that WSU uses to place students into the proper coursework. These tests may be taken offsite in place of attending a Placement Day at WSU.

    Below are your options for taking the placement test as an alternative to coming to campus for a Placement Day:

    1. Previously tested:  If you have taken Accuplacer at your high school, please let us know and email your scores to
    2. On campus at WSU: We offer testing appointments for new students. Please call the office at 508-929-8219 to set up a time.

    Watch this video to introduce yourself to Accuplacer and learn about the role it plays in your first semester.

    Step 3: Sign Up for Orientation

    Now that you have completed the registration process, remember to sign up for a new student orientation session.
