Complete placement exams
All entering freshmen at Michigan State University are required to take the online math placement exam before attending an International Academic Orientation Program (AOP). Students who have studied a foreign language prior to MSU who wish to continue study must also complete a foreign language placement exam.
For students enrolling in the fall, it is requested all tests be completed by May 6, to allow advisers time to preregister students in courses at the appropriate skill level. Students enrolling in spring and summer semesters must take the exam prior to attending AOP.
Students unable to take the test online prior to AOP or those who wish to demonstrate competency to waive requirements must take the appropriate proctored placement exam during AOP.
