Standardized Test Requirements

For mathematics placement, the Department of Mathematics strongly recommends that enrolling students arrange to take the Mathematics 2 SAT Subject Test; although this test is not required for admission, many majors at Carolina require a quantitative reasoning course for which a mathematics placement score is necessary. Foreign language placement may be based on University placement exams, SAT Subject Tests, or College Board Advanced Placement tests. For English placement, students are required to take either English 105 at the University, or present an equivalent transferable course from another college or university. Students also are encouraged to take standardized tests that are recognized for placement in other subject areas.
