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. All other students must take a math placement test. |
The math placement tests are administered 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
