Determine Whether You Need to Take the UW-System Placement Tests
UW-River Falls requires Placement Tests to help you place in the appropriate English, math, and foreign language courses. If you haven't earned credit for any college-level math or English courses, you will need to take the UW-System Placement Tests. UW-River Falls will host a Placement Testing on Tuesday, January 22nd for students enrolling for Spring 2020. If you have questions about Placement Tests, please refer to our Placement Testing webpage.

Prepare for Your Academic Advising Session
To help ensure you get the best advice for your major and class schedule, be sure to double-check that we have the correct major listed in our registration system.
You should also submit official transcripts for any university/college courses that you've completed prior to attending registration. Otherwise, bring unofficial transcripts for any college courses that you have in progress or that you've recently completed.
Note: having an idea of what classes you want to take can be very helpful when you come to registration, but keep an open mind when it comes to your first course schedule. Your advisor will assist you in getting the schedule that is right for you!
