Advanced Math Assessment

You may be required to take a math assessment if you plan to register for a higher-level math course.

Higher-level Math Courses

If you enroll in the following courses but have not taken the prerequisite math course(s), you must take a math assessment test. Passing scores do not expire, however, it is recommended that you retest after five years.

  • Pre Calculus (MATH 2412): ALEKS PPL score – 65
  • Calculus I (MATH 2413): ALEKS PPL score – 80
  • Business Calculus (MATH 1325): ALEKS PPL score – 61

Taking Math Assessment Tests

Pay the $35 Advanced Math Assessment fee in the Assessment Marketplace Store. The $35 fee includes up to five attempts at the placement test and gives you access to the ALEKS system for review and practice after your first test attempt.

Allow at least an hour and a half to complete your test.

Go to the Testing Center where you would like to test.

NOTE: ALEKS scores from other Institutions will not be accepted.
