Success at Temple University does not follow one particular pathway, as our students are varied and diverse in their backgrounds. For incoming students, it is important that they start on the right track, beginning with determining the appropriate courses for their first semester. Some incoming students may be placed into courses using their SAT or ACT scores while others will need to take placement assessments. Placement Assessments are offered in English, Math, and Foreign Languages. For more information about Placement Assessments, go to the Institutional Research and Assessment web site at http://www.temple.edu/ira/exam-services/placement-assessments.html.
