Placement Assessments

Testing Center

The Brooklyn Campus Placement Assessment in both English and Mathematics is for students who wish to register for classes and have not submitted sufficient SAT or ACT scores. The exam must be taken at least 7 business days before registration.

The purpose of the Placement Assessment is to determine which courses in English and Mathematics will be most beneficial to you and will help you to develop and strengthen the skills you will need to succeed in your studies. Our dedicated Promise Coaches will meet with you individually to help you plan a schedule of courses based upon your Placement results.

Placement assessments for English and Mathematics are available in person or online. Please allow at least 5 business days after completing the assessment for your results to post to your account for class registration.

The placement assessment can be given in one sitting of 4 hours or in two sittings of 2 hours each. This includes 2 hours for English and 2 hours for Mathematics. You may take less time if you wish, but 4 hours is the maximum time allowed. Please note: Long Island University will not charge any fee for this testing service.

Retesting is an option under certain conditions. Please email the Testing Center at bkln-testing@liu.edu to check if you are eligible for a retest.

We are very happy to offer you these convenient options. Please contact us if we can help you further. Thank you for your interest in LIU.
