The information for each of the general studies courses provided below will assist students in understanding the course components; these include course descriptions, example syllabi, exam review problems, and additional information that will assist students in preparing for the course.
It is important to attend all your math classes and access your online course materials for ASU Online and iCourse sections to ensure you do not miss any course assignments or supplemental instruction. Failure to attend class (or access your online course) at the start of the term could result in an instructor-initiated drop for non-attendance.
Your course syllabus should contain a class attendance policy, if it does not please contact your instructor for attendance expectations and consequences. If you have excessive absences, as defined by your syllabus, you may fail the course due to non-attendance which will record on your transcript as a failing grade of E.
Should you have questions about your course's attendance policies please contact your instructor or our department at firstname.lastname@example.org or 480-965-7195.
Proctoring for ASU Online and iCourse Classes
If you are enrolled in an ASU Online or iCourse section of a math or statistics course, your course exams will most-likely be proctored using an online service through RPNow. Your instructor will provide further details in the course syllabus. If you have any questions, speak with your course instructor.
Math Placement Exam
All incoming freshman students must complete the ALEKS Mathematics Placement Assessment 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.
