Albright conducts placement testing for incoming students on a limited basis. If we determine that you must take a brief online placement exercise for English, we will contact you. Otherwise you need not take action.

If you plan to meet the Foreign Language requirement in a language you took for more than one year in high school, or in a language in which you are bilingual or a native or heritage speaker, then you are required to take a brief online language placement test by July 1.
