Placement Testing for New Students

Mathematics Placement

Most first-time freshmen must take the MMT exam, an online mathematics assessment, for placement in mathematics courses.

Math Placement

Placement may be based on MMT results or on prior course credit, including

  • transfer credit
  • dual credit
  • AP credit
  • IB credit

For students exempt from college algebra based on ACT or SAT math sub-scores, the MMT exam may still be required for other mathematics course placement.
