Required Tasks

Every new Stonehill student must complete the College Writing Readiness Survey by Saturday, June 1. Every student must fulfill the first year writing (FYW) requirement as part of our general education curriculum. To help us determine which course instructor and topic would be the best fit for you, you must complete the College Writing Readiness Survey and provide a brief (250-500 words) writing sample.

You are required to take the Calculus Readiness Assessment if you are intending to major in Astronomy, Computer Science, Earth & Planetary Sciences, Economics, Engineering, Mathematics, Photonics or Physics. Your assessment score will be combined with data from your admission record to allow us to make a recommendation as to which math course will be the best option for you in the fall. 

If you are majoring in one of the other sciences, you are NOT required to take the Calculus Readiness Assessment because our recommendation is for you to take Pre-Calculus prior to taking Calculus. However, you may take the Calculus Readiness Assessment if you have a strong background in Calculus and would like to be able to bypass Pre-Calculus and go directly into Calculus.
