Mandatory placement for all entry-level mathematics courses is required by the Department of Mathematics. The appropriate level of course for a student is determined by a mathematics placement test; therefore, students should give their best effort when taking this test.
Students may be exempt from taking the math placement test, based on the following:
A student exempt from placement testing may, with assistance from an advisor, select the math course that best meets the requirements of his or her program of study. |
The math placement tests are administrated using ACCUPLACER, a computerized assessment system.
Math placement recommendations will vary based on a student’s background in mathematics: course placements can range from Algebra Review (GENS 097) to Calculus I (MATH 230).
Questions regarding Math Placement can be directed to Dr. Bill Wilding, math department chair, at 812/465-1689 or bwilding@usi.edu or Nancy Myers in Academic Skills at 812/464-1743 or nmyers@usi.edu
