Academic Readiness, Testing & Tutoring
The Office of Academic Readiness, Testing & Tutoring is a unit within Academic Affairs at Eastern Kentucky University. The office plans, implements, and supports programs and services for students transitioning from high school or the workplace to the University. The offices provide program coordination and transition and testing services that support the goals of current and potential students, departments, and the University. Our services allow students to build needed skills and/or demonstrate knowledge base for admission to the University or University programs, and provide appropriate course placement information to maximize each student's academic success.
