Self-Assessment Placement Surveys

What are the placement surveys?

At Shippensburg University, our goal is to help you succeed, and part of accomplishing this goal is placing you into courses that develop the skills you need. We will use these results to better determine which courses are best for you.

The Writing self-assessment survey is 100% online, mobile friendly, and can each be completed in under 20 minutes.
