For Incoming First Year Students:

If your Next Steps Center Math message recommends testing, please take the PPL Assessment.

Testing is required if:

If there is a missing test score in your Next Steps Center or you have college math credit, send a copy of your scores or credit to  Math Placement Office.

Students should test at least one week prior to their orientation date, if possible. However, tests completed prior to orientation will be processed in time for course registration. 


Testing cannot hurt your placement level. Your Math course will be based on your highest placement score.


If you have transfer credit, check the information in the Math Placement section of your Next Steps Center (incoming students only) or on our transfer website.

If you still have questions, contact the Math Placement Office.
