Placement Testing

Some courses at UNF require you to take an assessment to place into them. These are the most common placements our first-year students may need, depending on the curriculum required for their intended major.

Math Placement

You will be advised on your required math course during orientation based on the following criteria:

  • Your declared major
  • Any accelerated math credit earned through dual enrollment, AP, IB, AICE, or CLEP exam

Students pursuing majors requiring College Algebra or higher will be reviewed through a predictive analytics model to determine the level of math they will be best served to start in for their future success.

Chemistry Placement

UNF requires both math skills at the college algebra level or higher AND an online preparation course for students to take CHM 2045-General Chemistry I. The chemistry prep course modules are online in Canvas and are available to students who register for General Chemistry I. Once registered for the course, you are required to learn 85% of the objectives in order to stay in General Chemistry I. If you do not learn 85% of the objectives, you will be required to complete CHM 1025 - Introduction to Chemistry before taking General Chemistry I.

The chemistry placement is accessed through your myWings portal under the Canvas tile. When in Canvas, select "All Courses", then "Chemistry Prep for Placement". When you sign into the ALEKS chemistry placement for the first time, you will take a knowledge assessment to determine the chemistry you already know. This should take about 90 minutes. After this, you can continue to work in the ALKES modules until August 12 (for the fall 2024 semester).

Foreign Language Placement

Please reach out to our Language, Literature, and Cultures department regarding any questions about the Foreign Language Placement Exam. They can be reached at 904-620-2282.

American Sign Language Placement

Students who have a background in American Sign Language and would like to try and place into a higher-level ASL course than our Beginning I level can contact one of our ASL instructors in the College of Education and Human Services, Michael Stultz or Jonathan Antal, to schedule a placement.
