Math Placement Result

What is my placement result?

Your placement result is your percentage mastery on the best assessment. Course placement is determined as follows:

MA1160 and MA1161 cover the same material, but MA1161 moves at a different pace--giving students an additional day of lecture each week.

* An AP Calculus AB score of 3 or higher will place you in the next subsequent math course for your major. If you wish to waive this credit or placement, you may.
