Mathematics Placement

All new students must take the Accuplacer Arithmetic test followed by the Accuplacer Elementary Algebra test. Those who score well on these two basic tests will take an Algebra II/Pre-Calculus test called the College Level Math test. In order to take a mathematics course at Worcester State University, a student must complete the placement test process prior to registration. Results will be used to determine appropriate course placement.
