OSU Reading and English Placement Exams

We're here to help.

As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the concerns for the health and safety of our guests and campus community, our OSU-Tulsa staff is working remotely. We want to assist you and will continue to work to meet your needs by email, telephone or virtual appointment.​ Visit this web page for the most up-to-date service information and to make an appointment.


There is a $10 fee payable to OSU-Tulsa. This fee may be paid by credit card (issued in examinee's name) in the testing center or by cash in the bursar office.


Reading and English Placement Exams are offered Monday through Friday. Appointments are preferred to ensure an available computer. Call the Testing Center to make an appointment. Walk-ins are welcome, but a space cannot be guaranteed without an appointment.

Required Identification

Examinees must present an acceptable photo ID before being permitted to test. Acceptable forms of identification include a driver's license, school I.D., military I.D., health department I.D. or current passport.


The computer-based OSU Reading and English Placement Exams measure English and Reading skills. Scores on these exams will help students and their advisors make OSU course placement decisions.

Scoring Information

Students may request a print-out of their score report upon completion. However, advisors will have access to the score reports through the OSU system.

Retest Policy

Students may take the exams twice but must wait at least 24 hours between attempts.
