MATH PLACEMENT

The MCIS department offers a mathematical placement exam that is required for students that do not have an American College Test (ACT) or Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) score available; for students whose ACT or SAT scores are more than three years old as of the beginning of the term for which the student is registering; for students whose ACT or SAT scores are not sufficient to accurately determine placement, or for students who want to improve an existing placement based on their ACT or SAT score. These students should contact Testing Services in room 140 Daugette Hall, 256-782-5475, to schedule an exam. For all other students, information regarding placement in an initial mathematics course based on the ACT or SAT mathematics component scores may be found below. The placement criteria are subject to change. Students will be placed based on the criteria that are current at the time of enrollment in their initial mathematics course.
