Q: Do I have to take a placement exam if I’m going to Edgewood College?

A: No.

It’s right about this time of year that we receive several calls and emails from students and parents about placement testing. At Edgewood College, placement for math and English courses is based on ACT scores and a review of the high school transcript.

The UW System does placement testing for students attending any of the UW schools. Due to the large number of students attending UW schools, students admitted to Edgewood or other private colleges in Wisconsin sometimes feel like they missed something when they hear the “buzz” around their high school about placement testing.

So, if you’re planning on enrolling at Edgewood College, you don’t have to worry about placement testing. All you need to do is sign-up for an Advising & Registration Day (check your mail or email for more information about Advising & Registration Days).
