Do you need to take the placement exam?

ALEKS Math Placement Exam testing for the Fall 2020 Semester opened on February 1st, 2020. The last day to take the ALEKS Math Placement Exam for Fall 2020 Semester is August 28th, 2020.

Note: After August 28th, 2020 there will be no ALEKS testing allowed.  Testing will resume for future semesters after October 1st, 2020.

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

USU uses ALEKS PPL for placement, preparation and learning.
