To Do List Before You Arrive
Before attending Highlander Orientation, please complete the following:
- Submit all of your standardized testing scores (AP, IB, etc.) and final transcripts from your high school or former educational institutions.
- Take the UC Analytical Writing Placement Exam (AWPE). If you missed the statewide exam in May, visit placementtest.ucr.edu for available test dates.
- If your major requires it, take the Math Advisory Exam (MAE) placement test. All CNAS and BCOE majors as well as the following CHASS majors require this testing: PRBS, PSYC, LBST, ECON, ECAT, ECLW, BSEC, PSAT, SCAT, HSAT, AHAT, NRSC, PYLW and HSUN. Visit placementtest.ucr.edu to schedule a test date in May or June.
NOTE: Failure to fulfill these placement exam requirements prior to attending Orientation will prevent you from registering for English (AWPE) or Math/Science (MAE) during Orientation. Only after you complete the exam(s) will you be able to register for AWPE and MAE.
