Note about placement tests: Students who do not have 6 or more credits in College English Composition or a similiar course, will need to take an ESL placement test upon arrival to campus. This test can ONLY be taken on campus. Students with English as a native language can take the online self-assessment for writing. You can find this by logging into myIPFW, click on the enrollment tab, then Orientation & Placement Tests. Students must also take a math placement test if they have not completed College Algebra. Both the ESL placement test and math placement test can be coordinated for you by the Office of International Education once we are notified of your arrival details.
