Placement Testing

Placement testing for the Class of 2024 will open on April 20, 2020. Incoming students must complete the mathematics and foreign language placement exams from home. No outside books or other resources can be used while taking these exams. It is essential that you take placement tests so that you have the opportunity to register for a math and/or foreign language at orientation. Not taking placement tests could impact your ability to register for certain courses.

Foreign Language Placement Tests

All students must complete at least one course at or above the Intermediate II level (104) in a modern or classical language to fulfill Loyola’s core curriculum. Instructions for taking the tests are available below:

Math Placement Tests

All students are required to take at least one course in mathematics or statistics to fulfill Loyola's core curriculum (except MA*004 and MA*109). Instructions for taking the math placement tests are available below:

  1. Login to the math placement test through WebWork.
  2. Enter your Inside Loyola login credentials when prompted. In the Username field, enter your username only. Do not include your full Loyola student email address.
  3. You should have an Algebra test and a Precalculus test available to complete. You must complete both tests.
  4. Once you open the test, you have thirty minutes to complete and submit your answers. You must click the "Grade Test" button at the bottom of the test before the time runs out or your score will not be recorded.

Placement results will be discussed by the student’s advisor on the second day of summer orientation.
