Math Placement Exam

Initial math placement is based on ACT or SAT scores. However, depending on a student’s major the Math Placement Exam may be needed. Please refer to the Registration tutorial to determine if the Math Placement Exam is for you. The Math Placement Exam is offered online. This allows students to adjust their academic plans as needed based on placement. Students will have 60 minutes to complete the Algebra & Functions exam and 30 minutes to complete the Trigonometry exam.
