The Academic Preparation and Achievement (APA) program provides placement testing for incoming students who have not yet met statewide minimum test scores or high school GPA requirements for college readiness.
Who needs to take a placement test?
Any incoming student can take a reading, writing, or mathematics placement test at no cost. Students with an APP status and placement test directive on their account need to complete a placement test prior to their summer 2023 Big Blue Nation Orientation.
Students admitted with an APP status received a letter accompanying their admissions letter with steps to take to resolve this status via placement testing. Students can also view their MyUK advising profile to determine what placement test(s) they need to complete.
