Placement Exams

    Welcome Saint Leo Lion! 

    In order to foster an environment that promotes academic success, it is vital that students take certain courses early in their academic careers. Placement Exams are just one way to help Student Success Coaches identify courses that best align with a student’s current academic ability. Other ways that this is determined are:

    • By deciding not to take Placement Exams. If a student decides not to complete placement exams, s/he will register for ENG 110-How to Write Well or MAT 100-Intro to Algebra with Applications (if required for selected major).
    • By submitting official ACT and/or SAT scores. The chart below outlines the courses a student will place in based on their scores:
    Saint Leo Mathematics COURSE GRID Mathematics ACT Scores Mathematics SAT Scores
    MAT 100/131 0 - 17 0 - 449
    MAT 128/141 18 - 20 450 - 519
    MAT 151/201 21 - 22 520 - 539
    MAT 152 23 - 26 540 - 609
    MAT 231 27 610
    Saint Leo English COURSE GRID English ACT Scores English SAT Scores
    ENG 110 - Native Speakers

    ENG 119 - Non-native Speakers
    0 - 18 0 - 509
    ENG 121 19 510
    • If you have credits from Advanced Placement, Dual Enrollment, International Baccalaureate (IB), or Cambridge AICE/GCE, please submit your transcripts to Saint Leo University Registrar's Department to verify if you are able to waive taking the placement exams. Please visit our Placement Exam Exemptions webpage for more information regarding exemptions.

    All students that take Placement Exams must uphold Saint Leo University's Core Value of Integrity as well as the university's Academic Honor Code.  Students needing accommodations should contact the Office of Accessibility Services to submit a formal request for ADA accommodations and provide necessary documentation. Contact the Office of Accessibility Services, at (352) 588-8464 or email

    Placement exams can be completed online using ProctorU, an online proctoring service or on campus in Kirk Hall. Please select your option below. Testing will begin on campus starting May 9th.
