We're certain that you, like us, will find Andrews University to be a place where you can Seek Knowledge, Affirm Faith and Change the World.
As a new student you are required to take a number of tests as you enroll at Andrews University—two before you arrive and the rest during Orientation. These tests will help you Live Wholly, Explore Intentionally, Engage Globally, and Learn Deeply.
First-Year Testing. This online computer-based testing consists of the "Do What You Are " assessment, the "PEPS Learning Style Inventory" assessment, and the "MI Advantage" assessment.These inventories will help you gain insight into your interests, abilities, and personality characteristics; grasp a better understanding of what careers will be best aligned with your personality and strengths, and assist us in helping you achieve your academic and career goals. This testing is required of first-year students and optional for transfer students.
Testing is open July 15 to August 20 for Fall 2018 and November 15 through December 15 for Spring 2019. Please make sure you complete the testing during the open dates, as not doing so may delay your registration process.
To take the test from any computer, follow these simple steps:
Upon arrival to campus, you will be scheduled to attend a mandatory 50-minute session with a professional career counselor to review your test results and discuss implications for your course of study and professional success.
The Math Placement Exam (MPE). The purpose of the MPE is to maximize student success in beginning mathematics courses by placing the student in a course at an appropriate level. We do not want you to take a course that is too hard for you. It is a waste of money to repeat failed courses—or to take a course you have already mastered. With a few exceptions, all undergraduate students must take the MPE to fulfill the General Education Mathematics requirement or to register in any mathematics course.
