Once your VMI email account has been created, you will receive instructions for taking foreign language and/or mathematics placement tests. The message, bearing the subject heading “Mandatory Placement Testing: Action Required,” will include your password.
Students who have taken two or more years of foreign language in grades nine through 12 are tested for language placement. All Naval ROTC cadets and all cadets in the applied mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, engineering, and psychology majors must take the mathematics placement test.
Test results, high school record, foreign residency, and a personal interview all contribute to recommendation for placement into appropriate-level courses.
