Mathematical Sciences Placement Levels
Mathematical Sciences Placement Levels determine what courses you can take at the start of your academic career at UW-Milwaukee. Students who place well can test out of certain general education requirements or begin their studies at a higher level. A placement level can be achieved in several ways:
- Placement Testing (for new freshmen or transfer and returning students), possibly supplemented with ACT Mathematics subsection scores. The Mathematics Placement Test is administered by the Department of Enrollment Services's Testing Center.
- Standardized Testing following high school curriculum such as Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB)
- Transfer Credit Assessment from another institution. Contact the math department undergraduate advisor to have credits earned at another institution assessed. Some courses in the UW-System have already been evaluated. Search the UW Transfer Information System for your courses.
- Course Work at UWM can factor into your placement level depending on your placement code. See below.
