Students are required to have their mathematics placement level determined before enrolling in their first mathematics course at UAH. This process is intended to help make sure that students are placed in an appropriate course, and therefore have the best possible opportunity for success.
Students are placed at the appropriate level according to AP calculus test scores, ACT/SAT scores in mathematics, their previous college credit (precalculus or higher), or a placement test. Students with various placement levels can begin their MA courses (depending on their major) as follows:
- Level 0: MA 004
- Level 1: MA 107, MA 110, or MA 112
- Level 2: MA 113, MA 115, or MA 120
- Level 3: MA 171
The following table describes placement based on ACT scores, SAT scores, and the placement test.
|Math ACT||Math SAT||Placement Test||AP Calculus Test Score||Placement||
Equivalent Math Course (dependent on major)
|0-19||200-440||0-44||NA||Level 0||MA 004|
|20-25||450-550||45-74||NA||Level 1||MA 107, 110, 112|
|26-28||560-590||75-94||NA||Level 2||MA 113, 115, 120|
|29-36||600-800||95-120||NA||Level 3||MA 171|
|NA||NA||NA||3 (either AB or BC test)||NA||MA 172|
|NA||NA||NA||4 or 5 (only the BC test)||NA||MA 201|
Please note that the equivalent mathematics course is the course that the student must enroll in based upon placement.
To schedule an appointment to take the mathematics placement test, please contact the Mathematical Sciences Department at (256) 824-6470 or Shelby Center 258A.
