Math Placement Assessment

The Department of Mathematics gives a placement assessment to place students in an appropriate math course. Currently, students wishing to take Pre-Calculus, Applied Calculus I, or Calculus I, are required to take the Math Placement Assessment. Upon completion of the assessment, you will be given a score of Level 1, 2, or 3. Your score will be e-mailed to you.

Level 3 (23 or above) – The student may register for MA 2550 Calculus I. Of course the student with a level 3 placement score may also register for MA 2490 Applied Calculus I.

Level 2 (15 to 22) – The student may register for either MA 2140 Precalculus or MA 2490 Applied Calculus I. If you took a similar course in high school, and believe that you should be taking MA 2550 Calculus,  you may retake the math placement assessment.  Tutoring support is available.

Level 1 (below 15) – The student must register for MA 1800 College Algebra before attempting MA 2550 Calculus course. Optionally, you may retake the math placement assessment.  Tutoring support is available.
