Placement Testing & SOAR Operating Status

In This Section

Rutgers University-Newark is following the news about COVID-19 with concern.  Therefore, we are taking precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of our community.  Due to the current operating status at Rutgers, we have postponed our early Placement Test and SOAR dates for our incoming Fall 2020 class.  See below for updates related to our Placement Test dates as well as our SOAR dates (which are separate events and will take place on separate dates): 

Placement Testing: scheduled to take place from April - August 2020.  Students will complete the RU-N placement test(s) online.  For additional information, visit: Placement Testing or email

SOAR Dates: scheduled to take place during the months of June, July, and August 2020 for our incoming Fall 2020.

Please continue to sign up for Placement Test dates and/or SOAR dates via Enrollment Pathways.  In the meantime, if you have any questions, email us at

We look forward to welcoming you to Rutgers this summer!
