Placement Testing

All first-time freshmen at Morgan State University are required to take a placement examination to determine their course placement. Students are tested in the areas of Reading Comprehension and Mathematics. Students are required to take courses as indicated by the results of their placement examination. Students must earn grades of "C" or better in all developmental courses.


When ACCESS Orientation begins, the ALEKS instructions along with the ALEKS access code will be sent to incoming freshmen who have registered for the ACCESS Orientation Program. Please email if you have any questions in reference to placement testing.
