Advising, Registration and Placement Testing

In the first phase of Orientation, we’ll get your academic advising, course registration, placement testing and other administrative things taken care of. 

To help with this process, you can review this Student FAQ. You can also watch this video on how to register for classes. 

Overview

Testing and Advisement Survey
Prior to your academic advisement and course registration meeting, you will want to complete some placement tests and a short advising survey.  Placement tests include the math and modern languages placement test. Please also complete a short advisement survey to help your summer advisor get to know a little about you and your academic interests.



Honor Code
As an incoming student at St. Norbert College, you agree to uphold a high level of academic integrity. All students are asked to abide by the St. Norbert College Honor Code while completing all placement tests. You cannot use any additional materials to complete any of the placement tests. Consulting a print or online source (e.g., dictionary) or a speaker of the language for which you are testing, using a smartphone or calculator, or otherwise getting assistance while you are taking placement tests, is not allowed. These acts are a violation of the SNC Honor Code. If you are found to have violated the Honor Code, your score(s) will be disqualified and you will undergo an honor code conference with our honor code facilitator.
