Placement Chart and MPLF Scores
This is for Fall incoming firstyear students only.
What is an MPLF score?
MPLF scores are given to first year students who have SAT/ACT math scores from 8/1/2022present, or have some college math credit.
Where can I find my math placement?
You can verify your math placement in the Next Steps Center in the Math Placement section of the Placements tile.
How is my MPLF score determined?
Use the charts below to see how your MPLF score is determined.
You are given the highest possible MPLF score based on all scores and credit in Next Steps Center.
For example: If you submit a College Algebra transfer credit equivalent to U of A Math 112 (MPLF 641) and an ACT Math score of 24 (MPLF 564) your MPLF score would be 641.
SAT / MPLF Equivalency
Your MPLF score directly correlates with your SAT Math score. For example: If you submit a SAT Math score of 530, your MPLF score would be 530.
