English Placement Study Guides

We want you to be successful in your English courses at Butler.

If you graduated from High School within the last three years we may be able to place you, without placement testing, based on your High School GPA. A copy of your High School transcript is required. See an advisor for your options.

Placement is available in English/Writing, Reading, and English as a Second Language (ESL). If you need to take a placement test, doing a review may help you score higher and move past beginning level courses. Use the study guides below for more specific help.
