Placement Testing Information
Online registration will begin on February 1, 2014
Your placement test scores will be used to place you in appropriate level college courses.
You will need to complete your English and math placement tests at least one week prior to your assigned Odyssey freshman orientation and registration date. Testing in March or April will allow ample time for your academic adviser to receive your test scores before you attend Odyssey in May or June and register for fall classes.
You are required to take the English and math placement tests unless you have completed a transferable college English composition course and/or math course.
Foreign language placement testing is optional.
Testing Dates and Odyssey
There are numerous testing dates during March, April and May at various UW System campuses. You may test at any location, allowing you to test closer to home.
Things to keep in mind:
Students attending Odyssey in May must take placement tests in March or April.
Students attending Odyssey in June must take placement tests in March, April or May.
Placement tests may not be taken on your Odyssey day.
Foreign Language Placement Testing (Optional)
To take the foreign language placement test in French, German or Spanish, you must have two or more years experience in the language in which you wish to test.
There is a possibility for you to earn retroactive credits
by taking the UW Oshkosh foreign language course you test into and
earning a grade of "B" or better in that course. Retroactive credit for
foreign language is a topic that will be explained further to you on
your Odyssey 2014: The Beginning date.
