Please check back regularly for updated testing times and locations.

 

Assessment testing is required for placement in the MATH SEQUENCEabove Math 360  
Students may enroll in Math 360 without testing

The Math Assessment has FOUR levels to choose from:
Level 1: Algebra Readiness (45 minute timed test)
Level 2: Elementary Algebra (45 minute timed test)
Level 3: Intermediate Algebra (45 minute timed test) 
Level 4: Pre-Calculus (60 minute timed test)
No Calculators Allowed

Please note: re-assessment is allowed ONCE after 2 weeks.  For further assessment, you must wait 6 months, WITHOUT taking a class on the Math Sequence.

To determine which Math Assessment is right for you, review the sample questions and practice tests below. Choose the test that best reflects your current skill level.
