Math Placement


All students will take two math placement exams. First, students will take the on-line math placement exam at least two weeks prior to orientation. This is a very important step as it prepares students for the required “proctored” math exam that ALL students will take during Orientation.  Remember; be sure to complete this on-line exam at least two weeks prior to your orientation session. Feedback from your on-line placement exam will be available, together with optional on-line materials to help you prepare for the placement exam at orientation. At orientation ALL students will take a proctored math placement test.  Proctored means the test will be given in a supervised setting, and only the scores from this proctored exam will be used for placement into all math classes.
