Dear Butler New Students,

It was great to see you all this weekend!

I’m writing with some reminders about what to expect tomorrow (Monday) and on Tuesday, when you’ll enroll in your first Princeton classes!

Make-Up Placement Tests (Monday, 8am - 5pm)

Tests will be available on Canvas from 8am - 5:00 pm on Monday in all offered subjects (languages and COS, PHY, CHM). This is the final placement testing opportunity.



Math Placement Workshops (Monday, 10am - 12pm)

If you have a math course in your queue, you’ve been invited to a fall math placement workshop (between 10am - 12pm tomorrow). You received the invitation message with your assigned workshop (time and classroom) on Thursday.
