This year we are offering two math assessment options on Day 1 of orientation (Monday, 3-5 p.m.) for all incoming freshmen:
1) Students who plan to take calculus will take the proctored UT Calculus Math Assessment provided by the College of Natural Science. Students who wish to pursue a BA in Economics, a BS in Psychology, or any program that requires calculus should take the Calculus Math Assessment. Students who plan to take the Calculus Math Assessment should purchase the $50 CNS Math Readiness Package prior to orientation. This package includes access to the ALEKS Math Assessment, ALEKS Learning Modules and the UT Math Assessment. The $50 fee may be deferred for students who qualify based on financial need. For more information about the UT Calculus math assessment, click here.
2) All other students have the option to take a test, given at the same time, that gives credit for M305G and can fulfill their core math requirement in many degree plans. Students must bring their own scientific or graphing calculator to this test. Cell phones may not be used as a calculator.
If you have questions about which test you should take, academic advisors will be available to help you in a meeting that is held right before the math assessment.
