Mathematics Placement

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

  • Students with an ACT Math of 25-27 (SAT (NEW) Math 590-640) earn credit for MATH 105 - Applied College Algebra.
  • Students with an ACT Math of 28 + (SAT (NEW) Math 660 +) earn credit for MATH 109 - Pre-Calculus Algebra.
  • Students with an ACT Math of 30 + (SAT (NEW) 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 + (SAT (NEW) Math 700 +) should not take this exam as they have already earned this credit.
