Math Placement Exam

Initial math placement is based on ACT or SAT scores. However, depending on a student’s major the Math Placement Exam may be needed. Please refer to the Registration tutorial to determine if the Math Placement Exam is for you.

The Math Placement Exam is offered online. Students will have 60 minutes to complete the Algebra & Functions exam and 30 minutes to complete the Trigonometry exam.

Students can adjust their academic plans as needed based on placement.

Plus you’ll get some great SU swag!

Spring Quarter Orientation: Friday, March 29, 2019 - 9 AM - 4:30 PM

You may RSVP for orientation via the link that was emailed to your SU email address.

Complete a Housing Application 

Freshman and Sophomores under 21 are required to live on campus. Juniors and Seniors can also live in campus residence halls and apartments on a space available basis. Learn how to apply for housing.

Health Insurance

Seattle University requires all full-time (enrolled in 12 or more credits) undergraduates to have health insurance. SU contracts the Student Health Insurance Plan through USI Insurance Services. Learn More about the Student Health Insurance Program.

If you have your own health insurance plan with comparable coverage and would like to remove the health insurance charge from your account, you MUST successfully submit an online waiver.

Please contact the Student Health Center if you have questions.
