Placement Testing

UW-Green Bay Admissions Office Web site: www.uwgb.edu/admissions/

English: ACT or SAT I Test Scores
Official ACT or SAT I scores are required for:

  • all new freshmen;
  • all transfer and reentry students who have not satisfactorily completed at least one college-level course in English composition;
  • transfer students who have completed fewer than 15 transferable credits at the time of application;
  • special (non-degree) students who want to enroll in an English composition course;
  • students wishing to be eligible for intercollegiate athletics.

ACT/SAT I test scores are used to provide a basis for course level placement in English composition, and to provide benchmark data for assessing verbal and quantitative skills developed by freshmen and sophomores. The test score policy also complies with University of Wisconsin System Regents policy and may be used by the Admissions Office to support a student’s admission to the University.

Mathematics: Wisconsin Mathematics Placement Test
The Wisconsin Mathematics Placement Test (WMPT) is required for:

  • all new freshmen;
  • all transfer and reentry students who have not satisfactorily  completed a college-level mathematics course;
  • all special students who want to enroll in a mathematics course.

The WMPT is scheduled throughout the state in April and May. Students not able to take a regional test may take one of the residual tests scheduled on campus near the start of each term. The test results determine the course level placement for mathematics courses. The test fee will normally be added to the student’s initial fee billing.
