Initial placement in mathematics is based on the combination of your math ACT/SAT score and the high school grade point average. Information on initial placement is available on the math department’s website. You may qualify for more than one course; you will choose according to your intended major. If you wish to place into a higher level in math, you may take the Math Placement Exam given at New Student Registration programs, and at the Math Learning Center. If you will be taking the MPE after not having taken mathematics for a few months, it’s a good idea to brush up during the week or two before the program so that your placement will be a more accurate reflection of what you know.
