Math Placement

All new students are required to take the Math Placement Assessment.

The goal of the placement exam is to help students enroll in the math course most suited to their background.

Transfer students must take the Math Placement Assessment if:

  • they do not transfer in any mathematics course, or
  • they need to take calculus as part of their PSU major (e.g., Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Information Technology, Mathematics, Meteorology)
