Placement Exams

Placement exams in languages, math, and chemistry must be completed online by June 15. Completing placement exams is the first step in the course registration process. Directions for which exams you are required to take are listed below.

You will need your KNET username (K20xx## format) and password to access the exams. Find them on your Applicant Status Page.

  • Languagesrequired for everyone who has taken previous language courses in, has any prior instruction in, or is a native speaker of Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Latin, and/or Spanish, even if you do not plan to continue studying the language at K.
  • Mathrequired if you think you might major in business, economics, math, the natural sciences (biology, chemistry, computer science, physics, 3/2 engineering), follow a pre-med track, or plan to take a calculus course.
  • Chemistryrequired if you think you might major in biology or chemistry, follow a pre-med track, or plan to take a chemistry course.

If you are undecided or unsure of what you might major in, you should complete the math, chemistry, and applicable language(s) exams. Taking the placement exam does NOT obligate you to further studies in that area. The results of the placement exams will tell you at what course level you would begin your studies at K.

All placement exams will be graded after the June 15 deadline and scores will be available before you register in July. Instructions for accessing your scores will be posted here in late June.
