Exam Cost

Cost and Payment Information

There is a non-refundable $25 fee to take the ALEKS Math Placement Assessment. This fee covers:

  • Your initial assessment, plus the option to retake the assessment up to two additional times to improve your course placement.
  • A six-week Prep and Learning module--customized for you after you initial assessment--to help you prepare for another assessment or to improve your skills for your first math course at Michigan Tech.

You will need a credit card to register for the assessment. If you do not have a credit card, you can purchase a pre-paid Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express at most retailers in the amount of $25. It is not possible to put this fee on your Michigan Tech student bill and financial aid will not cover this cost—you must pay ALEKS directly.
