If you have earned any of the following scores/credits sufficient to place you into a math or stats course, within the past one year (three semesters: spring, summer, fall), you can use these as prerequisites and do not need to take the math placement exam:

  • A passing grade (C- or higher) in a college-level math course
  • A sufficient score on the ACT or SAT math exams
  • A sufficient score on an AP Calculus exam
  • Credit for the IBO Mathematics exam

What math do I need for my major?

All USU students need to meet the Quantitative Literacy (QL) requirement to graduate, regardless of major or program. Some majors require additional courses beyond the QL requirement.
