HELP! I CAN’T ATTEND ON MAY 11: WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Out-of-state students, international students, religiously observant students and students who truly cannot come to campus on May 11, must register to take the RU Placement Tests on a different day. Do this at oirap.rutgers.edu/testplace.html. IT IS ESSENTIAL that you complete the placement tests by June 2013 or as soon as your schedule will allow.
