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, Latin, and German placement exams are paper exams that are administered in-person. You can take these exams at UTS’s office in Clark Howell Hall, right next to the Tate Student Center, on UGA’s Athens campus. We are open every Monday-Friday 8am-5pm. During orientation, our office will open at 7:30am to allow placement exams to be taken before orientation begins. Please register ahead of time through the UTS website.

We are also hosting placement exams on UGA’s Gwinnett campus on Friday, June 18th and Wednesday, July 14th from 9:30am-12:30pm. Scheduling for these test dates is also available through the UTS website.
