Math Assessment


English and math placement testing

The Center for Academic Enrichment (CAE) provides a free math assessment to aid incoming students in ​math course selection. This tool is designed to help you assess your ​mathematical knowledge and skills ​and make choices that will facilitate your academic success.​

Who should take the assessment?

Incoming students needing a quantitative reasoning course are strongly encouraged to take the math assessment, as your results may guide you towards the best path for success in completing your quantitative reasoning requirement.

Students looking to enroll in MATH 425 (Calculus I) are required to take the math assessment unless they already meet the prerequisite for the course.

When, where, why & how?

The math assessment can be taken online at a place and time that are most convenient for you!  Your assessment should be completed prior to your scheduled advising appointment to ensure class selections that are appropriate for you and your academic goals.
