Math Placement

Take the Math Placement Test

(if needed)

You need to take the placement exam if:

  • You want to take Math 123 (precalculus) or Math 151 (calculus) and you do not have AP or dual enrollment credit for the prerequisites.
  • You are placed in Math 100 using your SAT/ACT score and HS GPA and would like to place into a higher numbered course.

You do not need to take the placement exam if:

  • Your SAT/ACT score and HS GPA have placed you in either Math 100 or Math 121 (College Algebra) and that is the course you want to take.
  • You want to take STAT 161/162/163 and that class will fill the requirement for your planned major (most social science majors).
  • You want to take Math 120 (Math for an Informed Citizenry) and that class will fill the requirement for your planned major (English, and most visual and performing arts majors).

Helpful Details for Math Placement Test

You have the choice of two tests, depending on which class you are trying to test into. There is a scientific calculator built into the system. Do not use a graphing calculator. You can take the test up to 3 times. There are online lessons to help you with the material you need to learn. For fall placement you need to pass the test previous to the Sunday before classes begin. Taking the test is subject to the E&H Honor code. Cheating will put you in a class where it will be hard to succeed, and you can be subject to honor court.
