Academic Placement

Southern is committed to students being enrolled in the appropriate level English, math, and foreign language courses which is why we strongly believe in a placement process that helps us determine the best courses to meet your individual skill level while also challenging you to excel.  If you need special testing accommodations due to a documented disability, please contact the Disability Resource Center at (203) 392-6828.

We are experiencing some unexpected issues with the online math placement so we are temporarily suspending it until further notice.  We are currently placing freshmen based on their SAT/ACT scores and transfers on their transfer credits.  We apologize for the inconvenience and are trying to resolve these issues as soon as possible so students will have an opportunity to take the placement prior to the start of the semester.
