    Placement Testing

    Math placement testing is required of all students who have not completed at least a 3-credit college Intermediate Algebra course (or higher level math course) with a minimum of a "C."

Students are strongly recommended to test before orientation to allow for more time to consider options should developmental coursework be necessary. Limited space for testing will be available during orientation for students who are not able to test earlier.
