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.

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

  • transfer credit
  • dual credit
  • AP 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.
