- Depending on the exam, placement exams are either administered remotely or must be taken in-person. All exams have a 1 hour time limit but often do not require the whole hour. You can register for placement exams on the UTS website. Please choose the UGA Students, Faculty, and Staff option under Register for an Exam and sign in with your UGA MyID.
- Placement exams cost $30 each. If you have a demonstrated financial need, please consider applying for UTS’s Need-based Financial Assistance Grant funded by the Parent’s Leadership Council.
Remote Placement Exams
- English, Spanish, French, and Hebrew are given remotely through ELC, UGA’s learning management system. To take these exams, you must register one week prior to the test date through the UTS website and provide UTS with your UGA MyID so that we can get you added to our ELC course before test day.
In-Person Placement Exams
- Math, Italian, and German placement exams are paper exams that are administered in-person. You can take these exams between 8:30 am and 11:30 am on Day 1 of orientation in the Miller Learning Center. The room will be listed in the “Schedule” tab of the “Welcome to UGA” app. You can also take them at UTS’s office in Clark Howell Hall, right next to the Tate Student Center, on UGA’s Athens campus. They are open every Monday-Friday 8am-5pm. Please register ahead of time through the UTS website.
