What is ALEKS?

Beginning Fall 2010 an appropriate score on the ALEKS will be required to take most lower-division Math classes at UT including M408K, M408C, (or M408N), SSC302/304/305/306, M316, M303D, and M305G.  The ALEKS test does NOT award credit for any class; it is a test that assists with math placement and can be used as a learning component. An internal
website with ALEKS info is being developed and will be accessible in
late April 2010.

If you do not need to take Calculus and only want to seek credit for 3
hrs of Math, you can take the SAT subject test in Math I/II which
awards credit for M305G if you achieve an appropriate score.
