Placement Testing Registration

What You Need Before Testing


You must have submitted an application to FSW prior to testing.
  • Once you have applied, check your email for your FSW Student ID and your new bucs email. Your FSW Student ID and bucs email are required in order to test.
  • If you have never accessed your bucs email, please follow the steps in the link provided. (The steps for accessing your bucs email are the same as the "How To: Reset Your Password" instructions.)

Placement Testing Options

  • Option 1:
  • Submit your ACT/SAT scores earned within the last two years—If you did not select FSW as a recipient for your scores when you took the exam, you can follow the instructions in the links below to send the scores electronically (allow at least two weeks processing time):

    Request SAT Scores from College Board: FSW SAT Code is 5191

    Request ACT Scores through your ACT Web Account: FSW ACT Code is 0727

  • OR
    Request a Zoom appointment to submit ACT/SAT scores: Email leetesting@fsw.edu
  • OR

    Submit your scores in person at an FSW Testing Center - you must have a Photo ID and your log in information to ACT/SAT.


  • Option 2:
  • Submit your College Transcripts—It is possible that your college coursework/degree could satisfy the placement testing (Assessment hold) requirement (if required).

    • All college transcript(s) must be received and reviewed/evaluated by the Office of the Registrar in order for the Testing Center to evaluate if your coursework can satisfy required placement testing (Assessment hold).
    • Check "View Holds" in the "Student Academics" tab of your FSW Student Portal for a description of the transcript(s) you are missing. Learn more about submitting final official college transcripts here.

  • Option 3:
  • Request to Take a Placement Test through FSW at no extra charge:

    • Review placement test sample questions
    • Remediation is required prior to retesting. Please review the Remediation Requirements if you are taking the placement test for the second or third attempt.
    • FSW students must receive permission from FSW Testing Services prior to taking the P.E.R.T/ACCUPLACER at non-FSW testing center locations.
    • Please note: A valid Photo ID and your FSW Student ID Number are required in order to test.

Placement Testing for Spring B, Summer, and Fall terms opens February 8, 2021.
