How You are Placed

Placement into Pre-calculus I, II, III, Business Calculus, Discrete Math or Calculus I is based on high school transcript evaluation or guided self-placement.

  • If you are a domestic student or your high school used an American style 4.0 scale grade point average (GPA) grading system, email or drop off an unofficial copy of your high school transcripts to the Testing and Assessment Center (Rm 8212) for evaulation.
  • If you did not go to high school in the United States, never attended high school anywhere, or your high school transcripts are unavailable. Come to the Testing and Assessment Center to complete a guided self-placement for Math.
  • If you have transfer credit from another college/university or Advanced Placement (AP) scores please complete a Prerequisite Clearance Form.
