This information is being provided to you so that you will be informed of your course options before you attend orientation. It is important that you read and understand the information contained here. If you have some general questions about your placement level, you should refer to the "Frequently Asked Questions About Mathematics Placement". If you have any further questions, write them down and bring them with you to your orientation session where you will get more information and advise on which course is most appropriate for your major. Feel free, for future reference, to bookmark or print out this page.
If you placed at Course Code M on your math skills assessment, you have the following options:
- If you expected to start in calculus (Math 1151 or 1131) and prefer that starting point rather than precalculus, then you will need to meet with the math faculty at orientation. You will receive more information at orientation as to the time and location of this session.* It should be noted that if a grade of E is received in Math 1151 or 1131, then your subsequent scheduling will revert to your original placement, i.e. M (1150 or 1130). If you did not enroll in math Autumn semester of freshman year, then from Spring semester and beyond, you have only the choices below.
- You are eligible for Math 1150 (Precalculus).
- You are eligible for Math 1130 (College Algebra for Business).
- You are eligible for Math 1116 (Excursions in Mathematics). Not available autumn semester on main campus, but may be available on extended campuses.
- You are eligible for Math 1125 (Mathematics for Elementary Teachers I).
- If you have taken the Advanced Placement Exam (AP Exam) in mathematics, your score on that exam might alter your placement. To see how the Mathematics Department awards credit for AP scores, go to the Advanced Placement Credit information.
- If you have transfer credit in mathematics from another university or college, this may allow you to schedule higher courses. This would include any coursework that you did at a university or college while you were still in high school. Please be sure to have your transcript sent to the Admissions Office, as soon as possible, so that transfer credit may be awarded.
Other useful information will be provided at Orientation in the Academic Section of your Orientation Resource Notebook.
