Mathematics Placement

Course placement into mathematics is based on ACT and SAT subscores.

  • Students with an ACT Math of 25, 26 or 27 (Before March 2016: SAT Math 570-620; After March 2016: SAT Math 590-640) earn credit for MATH 105 - Applied College Algebra.
  • Students with an ACT Math of 28 or 29 (Before March 2016: SAT Math 630-660; After March 2016: SAT Math 650-690) earn credit for MATH 109 - Pre-Calculus Algebra.
  • Students with an ACT Math of 30+ (Before March 2016: SAT Math 670+; After March 2016: SAT Math 700+) earn credit for MATH 109 & MATH 110 - Pre-Calculus Algebra & Pre-Calculus Trigonometry and Function Theory

The Mathematics Placement exam allows a student to earn up to 6 credit hours in MATH 109 & MATH 110, therefore students with a Math ACT of 30+ (Before March 2016: SAT Math 670+; After March 2016: SAT Math 700+) should not take this exam as they have already earned this credit.

UL Lafayette awards credit to students earning AP, CLEP and Military Credit, etc. View our Credit by Other Means section of the University Catalog for details.
