Math Placement Information

College level math placement for CWC can be determined by:

  • Math ACT score (within the past 2 years) OR
  • Score on a PROCTORED ALEKS Math Assessment (within the past 2 years)  OR
  • Previously earned college credit (subject to evaluation by the Office of the Registrar)

There are multiple course options for each math placement level. The math course(s) a student

should take varies based on their intended program of study. Talk to your advisor to see what math

course(s) you need for your degree.

Students who are not placed into college-level coursework via Math ACT scores, equivalent Math SAT scores,

or previously earned college credit MUST TAKE the ALEKS exam for placement. ALEKS offers an initial non-

proctored assessment that can be completed at home, and Prep and Learning Modules to gain and refresh

knowledge. ALEKS is calibrated with the idea that a student does not have a calculator, and ALEKS provides one

during the assessment when one is allowed.

Students should discuss scores with their advisor to ensure proper placement has been met.

Proctored placement test scores must be received and entered in the student file prior to course start date.
