Placement Testing for New Students

Incoming students to Park University may be required to take placement exams.  Required tests may include math skills, reading skills, and writing skills. We use the College Success tests, produced by McCann Associates.  Students who need to take these tests may wish to prepare by looking at sample questions at https://college.measuredsuccess.com/mscollege/practiceTest2/index.html . Click on the links for math, reading and writing to see sample questions. Note: we do NOT use the test called "Writing MC."

We give tests at the scheduled Get On Board days, and also by individual appointment. If you need to take placement tests on the Parkville campus, your admissions advisor can help you make an appointment. Be aware that classes fill quickly, and you need to test before you can enroll. The earlier you take placement tests, the more likely you are to get seats in the classes that best fit your schedule!
