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.

The Math Activity Center provides assistance during Hours of Operation.
