Mathematics Placement Test
The core curriculum requires mathematics. TWU will give an Accuplacer math test which will determine which mathematics class you should take. If you have taken another TSI-Texas Success Initiative math test (THEA, MAPS, Compass or ASSET) your score on the mathematics exam will determine your placement. (The Accuplacer exam administered for placement at Orientation will satisfy TSI-math requirements for TWU.)
550 or higher on the SAT math,
22 or higher on the ACT math or
270 or greater on the THEA math
63 or higher on Accuplacer math.
Students who have previously completed a college algebra or calculus class are also exempt from the placement exams.
If you are exempt from taking the placement tests, please bring documentation (test scores or transcripts) with you to orientation in case we have not received your scores.
Science Placement Test
All new students who are planning on a science-based major such as nursing, dental hygiene, Pre-PT, Pre-OT, etc. are required to take the Science Placement Tests.
English Placement Test
A Directed Self-Placement Test must be taken by all new students except those who have SAT verbal scores of 440 or higher, ACT English scores of 18 or higher and/or THEA scores of 240. Any student who has not taken the ACT, THEA, SAT or has not taken college-level English or does not have scores available, will need to take this placement test prior to attending orientation. Students who are exempt from taking the English Placement Test will be placed in the appropriate English class by their advisor.
