Residual Testing

Students not able to do the Regional Placement Testing in the spring will take the Residual Placement Test. If you are a current student and wish to test on one of the dates below, please sign up at the link below. Individual appointments are available upon request but it is highly recommended that you attend a group testing date. Any student requesting an individual testing date will be charged a proctoring fee of $5.00 which will be payable upon testing in the form of cash or check. It is advised to attend the group dates which are free! 

ALL UW-Green Bay students are required to take the Wisconsin Mathematics Placement Test (WMPT). The only exception is for students who transfer in a college course equivalent to or higher than Math 094, Math 099, Math 100, or Comm Sci 205.  If you have not taken this test yet, you should plan to do so on one of the next available test dates listed below.  

Date:  Tuesdays on September 11, October 9, October 30, and November 27
Time:  9:00 - 10:45 am
Place:  Mary Ann Cofrin Hall (MAC) 236


Date:  January 2019

For each of the test dates above, only the Math test will be given. If the Foreign Language test is also needed, an individual appointment will need to be set up at a prior/later time unless you will only be taking the Foreign Language test during the test session, in which case you need to indicate this on the online sign-up. Contact Pam Gilson for more details: or 920-465-2221. 

Bring photo ID, non-graphing calculator and #2 pencils to test session. 

Photo identification REQUIRED! The University of Wisconsin requires students to show a government-issued photo identification document such as driver’s license, state-issued ID or passport when they arrive to take placement tests. Students will not be allowed to test without providing an appropriate photo ID.
