Make-up a missed examination
Proctoring for make-up exams is also provided in the Advising Center. Times and days will vary by quarter. Arrangements for make-up exams must be made by the student's professor and coordinated through the Advising Center. A photo I.D. is required at all make-up examinations.
Upon admission to the college, students should call the Advising Center at (513)745-5783 to schedule their placement tests. All incoming students are required to take a placement test that will evaluate their English and math skills. Some students may be asked to complete a test in foreign language, chemistry or another subject, depending on their selected major. And international students may be asked to take the Ability to Benefit test. When a student's placement tests are scored, you will be assigned an advisor, who will guide you through your degree or certificate program.
Do I have to take a placement test?
Yes. However, if you have completed previous college level work in math or english, please check with Enrollment Services at (513)745-5700 to see if any portion of the placement test can be waived.
Are there particular classes or majors that require placement test scores?
Yes. For example, the English Department requires that all students complete the English Placement Essay. If you studied French, German, or Spanish for two or more years within the past two years, and plan to enroll in classes in that same language at UCBA, you should take the Foreign Language Placement Test before you register for classes. To be properly placed in a computer course, some students will need to take the Keyboarding, Document Formatting, or Document Production Placement Test (call (513)745-5695 for information on these three tests).
For more information on any of the above tests, call (513)745-5783.
What is English Placement Assessment?
Along with a brief math portion on the college's placement test, all undergraduate students must complete the English Placement Essay (essays can also be completed online through our Placement Testing center). English Placement Assessment evaluates a student's skills to ensure they are beginning their courses at a level that is best for them. This is not a test that you pass or fail, and it does not affect your admission to the university.
For additional information about English Placement Assessment requirements and policies, our placement testing center or pick up a brochure in the Advising Center.
