Most first-year admitted students are not required to take a placement test. College readiness is determined by SAT scores (if available), cumulative High School GPA, and other factors. The School of General Studies will contact newly (Fall 2021) admitted first-year students through their personal email to provide instructions on how to register for an Academic Advising Appointment.
To schedule an Academic Advising Appointment, please click here. Students can also email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about scheduling an appointment.
Before registering for classes, newly accepted transfer students should sign up for Transfer Advisement Days after their program evaluation and placement test (if required) are completed. Transfer students that require a placement test will receive a notification via their personal and Kean email.

Kean University policy requires that all newly-admitted undergraduate ESL students take a writing placement test to determine their writing, grammar, and reading courses. In addition to the writing test, an oral interview will be required to determine speaking and listening courses. The written placement test will be administered through email and immediately followed by an oral interview via Google Meet. In some cases, ESL students will be required to take a math placement test online. If testing is necessary, students will be notified via their personal and Kean email.
