Updated Information:

Due to the COVID19 virus, our Miami campuses are closed at this time.

If you are a College Credit Plus (CCP) Applicant, there have been changes to the requirements for entrance to the program. Please contact CCPRegionals@MiamiOH.edu for details. The TLC will not be testing CCP students for the fall semester.

The TLC has a remote Placement Testing available for New Incoming (graduated from High School), Transfer, and Current students. 

To be able to take the Remote TLC Placement Test, you will need the following:

  • While it is possible to take this on a smartphone, it is advisable to take it on a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer. (If you do need to take the placement test on a phone, it is recommended you download the free Canvas Student app from the App store or Google Play store.)
  • Internet access
  • A scientific calculator, for the math tests- (is not mandatory but allowed)
  • Paper and pencil
  • A quiet place (up to 2 hours per test)

New Incoming (Graduated from high School), Transfer, and Current students may complete the form below and someone from our office will contact you.

TLC Placement Test Request Form.

New Incoming Student

A new incoming student is responsible for sending their ACT/SAT scores to Miami Regionals as part of the application process. Those who do not have scores must take the Placement Test and will be contacted to do so after the application process is complete. These placement scores are needed to show placement levels and aid us in determining what courses to schedule for the student.

Transfer Student

Transfer students without math credit, or with math credit that does not exactly match a math course at Miami University, must take the Math Test. Also, reading and writing credits must match a course at Miami University or the student must take either the Reading or Writing Placement Test depending on which one or ones they need. This will be determined prior to scheduling the test.

Current Student

Current students may re-test a certain test one time per semester. Certain times a student may want to improve their ACT/SAT or test score.

TLC CLEP Testing Request Form.

Credit is given for satisfactory scores on some CLEP Subject Examinations. Tests are scored by the Educational Testing Service, Princeton, New Jersey. Because there is a fee for each test (see the Fees and Expenses section), we encourage you to take them only if you have had the equivalent of a college course in the subject area.

Miami's Hamilton campus operates an open CLEP testing center, which means tests are offered to university students as well as to members of the community who are not enrolled at Miami University. Miami's Middletown and Oxford campuses do not currently offer CLEP testing.
