WVU Parkersburg offers a comprehensive testing program to determine course placement, award college credit, to aide in career development and the admissions process.

Course Placement Evaluation

Sometimes called placement tests, these tests are designed to diagnose the math and English of prospective students for course placement. The evaluations are administered primarily by appointment from mid-April to the close of Fall semester registration, and again from mid-October to the close of Spring semester registration. These exams are administered on both the Jackson County Center and the Parkersburg campus.
