Assessment & Testing

As part of the City University of New York (CUNY), Hostos requires that students take the CUNY basic skills tests in reading and writing, and mathematics to demonstrate their proficiency and readiness to do college level work. A test of Spanish proficiency is given to students who are native speakers of Spanish. Students who are learners of English as a second language are administered an ESL placement test.

No student is permitted to register without taking the required placement tests or showing proof of exemption.
