Placement tests are only available to admitted UToledo students and not to be confused with entrance exams. These tests measure aptitude to determine what course level you should enroll for a successful learning experience. Students are permitted one attempt at any Blackboard placement test in a calendar year.

After completion of your test(s), check with your academic advisor for placement and registration information. Most test scores are posted to your student record within 24-48 hours of completion, with the exception of ESL Writing, Japanese, and Arabic, as these are manually graded by the academic departments. You can also check your records in your Student Profile in the myUT portal

    • German

For placement testing in Arabic, contact Dr. Gaby Semaan.

ESL Writing Placement Test (requires lockdown browser)

The ESL Placement Test determines your course registration for English composition at UToledo and is not to be confused with the TOEFL English language proficiency test required for international admission.

NOTE: This online test is graded by the English department and as such, may experience delays in score entry. ESL placement tests are available in summer but will not be graded until the week before fall semester start.

College Algebra or Trigonometry

The Department of Mathematics strongly recommends completing the ALEKS math placement for a more accurate assessment with remediation options for a higher placement score. While there is a small fee for this, it does provide remediation and multiple attempts, whereas the free departmental version only allows one attempt in a calendar year.

To request access to the free online math placement test(s) offered through UToledo Testing Services, please complete the request form below.
