Complete Placement Tests

Incoming undergraduate students need to take UWest’s Math Placement Test (MPT) and the Writing Placement Test (WPT). These tests are not admission tests; they are used by UWest to place students in the appropriate General Education math and writing courses. You will receive instructions on how to complete the placement tests once you submit your Intent to Enroll.

(Note: This testing requirement may be waived if you are transferring in credit for the equivalent math and/or composition courses. Once your transfer credit evaluation is complete, you will be informed of your testing and other requirements.)

How to Register for Classes

We will email you a Welcome Letter once you submit your Intent to Enroll. The Welcome Letter includes further details on class advisement and registration, new student orientation, placement testing, and log-in information for your UWest email and Moodle accounts (UWest’s learning management system).

Mark Your Calendar for UDays

New student orientation, called UDays at UWest, is designed to give our new students an introduction to the campus culture and resources and to help you with the transition to college life. All new students are REQUIRED to complete an online UDays orientation before arriving at UWest as well as attend in-person orientation (UDays Live), which takes place on campus the week before instruction begins. You will receive further details about UDays and UDays Live once you submit your Intent to Enroll form.
