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 2021 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): 

2021 Placement Testing: Students will complete the RU-N placement test(s) online.  For additional information, visit: New Student Placement Testing or email

2021 SOAR Dates: scheduled to take place during the months of May, June, July, and August 2021 for our incoming Fall 2021 students.

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

We look forward to welcoming you to Rutgers this summer!
