Placement Testing

Placement testing consists of Accuplacer (for English and math placement) and tests determined by a student’s intended major. Not all students will have to take placement tests on their Huskies Advising and Registration Day as ACT scores will suffice for many. Check the Placement Testing at SCSU website for more information.

Still have questions about placement testing? Please call Undergraduate Studies Placement Testing: (320) 308-8378.

What to Bring

  • Government issued photo ID to get your SCSU ID card.
  • Method of payment, if you wish to purchase SCSU logo wear from our campus bookstore, or make a deposit into your Campus Cash account.
  • List of any courses and/or tests and transcripts for any college level credits that have not yet been sent to St. Cloud State University.
