COS Placement Exam

A new online COS placement test is now available for students with significant computer science experience (typically a 5 on the AP CS A exam) who wish to take computer science beyond the introductory level. If you are interested in trying to place out of COS 126 and into COS 217 or 226, please complete this placement exam by Friday, September 8. This will enable the COS department to evaluate your responses and render a placement decision before you meet with your adviser to choose courses on Tuesday, September 12. The exam is available here.

The Computer Science department does not award AP credit. Please direct questions about placement in Computer Science to Dr. Christopher Moretti, cmoretti@cs.princeton.edu, the Computer Science Placement Officer.
