Many Atlantic-area universities have found that incoming students are not uniformly well-prepared for calculus. Many students are very well prepared, and ready to start the usual calculus curriculum; but some are not. As a result, placement tests are common, and at some universities, if you do not pass the placement test, you will be required to take a remedial course covering important material from the high school curriculum before you can take calculus. The following is a link to take you to a site where you can access information about the test and obtain a study guide for the test.
