Placement & Testing

All incoming freshman students must complete the ASU Math Placement Test before attending orientation and enrolling in classes, including incoming freshmen who have already received AP math credit. Transfer students are also required to take the Math Placement Test unless they have transferred an equivalent prerequisite course for the ASU mathematics course they intend to take. If you think you have a course that you can transfer in, please check https://transfer.asu.edu/credits and use the Transfer Credit Guide. It is recommended that all students take the Mathematics Placement Test just in case their course doesn’t count as an equivalent prerequisite.

Once you've begun the Math Placement Test, you have two hours to complete it. You cannot save your place and come back to the test. Please allow 24-48 hours for your score to appear on My ASU.

Your advisor will review your placement test score and your major math requirements to determine the appropriate math course for you.
