Step 2: Take Placement Exams
As a newly admitted student, you must take the mathematics placement examination prior to orientation
in order to register for the appropriate math course. Please note: this will not be offered during
orientation and students will not be eligible to register for a math course until it is completed.
The math placement exam is available to be taken online at www.indstate.edu/testing and typically takes
less than an hour to complete. To login, you will need your student ID number (991######) found on the
letter included in this packet.
You may also be interested in taking a non-native language placement test. Details are listed on the web
site below on who should take the test prior to New Student Orientation.
