All incoming START students are required to take the ALEKS Placement Assessment
All of your previous college math courses will be used to determine your placement, along with any AP/IB scores. Your ALEKS score will not lower your placement if you have previous college credits. The ALEKS score can only improve your math placement. For example, if you have successfully completed College Algebra, MTH 111, at another institution and score a 50 on the ALEKS Assessment, you will be able to register for MTH 112 or MTH 241 based on your completion of MTH 111. It is important to discuss with your advisor during your START advising appointment what math courses are needed for your particular major.
