Optional Math Placement Exam

Upon Acceptance, CPCE program applicants may complete an online math placement test no later than one full week prior to the start of the semester and before registering for MATH1005, College Mathematics A. Applicants who receive transfer credit for MATH1005 or who have been advised to enroll in Basic Algebra (MATH0900) are not required to complete the test. Each section of the exam will only be given to a student once a semester.

The exam consists of three sections:

  • Section I College Mathematics A
  • Section II College Mathematics B
  • Section III College Mathematics C

All students must take Section I of the exam unless they have been awarded transfer credit for MATH1005 or have been advised to enroll in Basic Algebra (MATH0900). Students are not required to take the other sections unless they are seeking placement into a higher level of mathematics. A student who passes both sections of the exam will be awarded advanced standing credit for College Mathematics A and advised that he/she may advance in the sequence of mathematics courses. Students requiring remediation will be advised of their options regarding preparatory course work. If a student in College Mathematics A, B, or C feels that he/she could test out of a mathematics course, he/she should contact the College of Professional and Continuing Education to arrange to take a comprehensive mathematics placement exam.

Applications are accepted for the fall, spring, and summer semesters.
