In order to correctly place students in mathematics courses at Indiana State Universty, students are required to take the Math Placement. All students (incoming and transfer) are required to take the online Math Placement. If you are an incoming ISU student, the test must be completed before attending the State Start-Up orientation. This is a requirement for all students that are new to ISU.
The only exception may be for recent high school graduates who scored a B or better in both semesters of high school Algebra II. Keep in mind that some of the science and major courses also require the score from the math placement. It is best to complete the Math Placement. The Math Placement should be completed in advance to prevent running into any barriers during registration. This will ensure that you are able to register for the best courses for your degree path. If your score is below the prerequisite score for Foundational Studies Quantitave Literacy but you met the prerequisite with your high school math classes, you may still be able to register for the Foundational Studies Quantitative Literacy class. Your advisor will be able to assist you to make this determination at the time of registration.
The Math Placement will help an advisor put you in the math course where you will be most successful. There is no charge to take the Math Placement.
Students who have not taken the Math Placement will be placed in the lowest math class.
Prepare to take the test:
