Placement Test Information

Immediately following your course registration appointment at Experience Eureka, students are able to take the MAT095R Placement Test. If students meet the minimum score of 80%, then they will test out of MAT095 and meet the math pre-requisite for many courses.


If you decide to take this test, you may bring a non-graphing scientific calculator. Please note that no cell phones, smart watches, computers, notebooks, or other electronic devices are allowed. If you decide to take the MAT095R Placement Test, you will have a delayed check out time from Orientation.
