Welcome to CBU Checklist

Follow this guide to make sure all of your business is squared away before the semester begins!

Placement Testing

CBU offers English, Spanish, French, and Math Placement Tests to help you ensure you are at the right level for our learning. Most incoming students are required to take one or more placement tests before they register for classes.

Within a week of you receiving your Welcome Email, Student Success will send you an email if you need to take one or more Placement Tests. If you have not yet received an invitation to complete Placement Testing and believe this is in error, email immediately.

Placement Testing will be provided primarily in an online format for students who have access to a laptop or desktop computer. For students unable to test online or prefer an in-person option, on-campus testing options will be provided at a later time. 

Class Registration

You’ll work with your Office of Student Success Advisor to determine which classes you should take this fall to make sure you’re starting off strong!
