All CCSU students are required to complete at least two courses beyond Intermediate Algebra (MATH 101).

If you have placed into Math 099, You are REQUIRED to pass Math 099 with at least a C- within your first 24 Credits.

**To see how to place *out* of MATH 099 summer 2016 click HERE.**

There are different mathematics course requirements for each major. You will learn more about this during your Advising and Orientation Program. Your SAT Math score is used to determine your eligibility for your first math course.

If you believe you are prepared for a higher level math course than your SAT Math score indicates, you may choose to take the Math Placement Exam

This chart determines your course eligibility based on your SAT Math score and your high school math background.

Mathematics course descriptions are found on-line at Courses Offered page.

No Math, Stat, or SAT credit must take the Mathematics Placement Exam.

Credit for MATH 099 only should take MATH 101 as soon as possible.

Credit for MATH 1XX only should contact the Department of Mathematical Sciences to determine whether or not you need to take the Mathematics Placement Exam.

Credit for MATH 099 and MATH 1XX only should contact the Department of Mathematical Sciences to determine whether or not you need MATH 101.

Credit for MATH 101 may take any Level 3 general education course; see the list below.

Credit for MATH 105 or above may use these courses to fulfill the general education requirement and possibly specific requirements for your major.

If you took the Mathematics Portion of the SATs within the past two years, this score may be used instead of a Placement Exam.

Elementary Algebra (MATH 099) and Remedial English (ENG 099) are designed to provide students needing reinforcement with the proficiency in English and Mathematics necessary to undertake college-level courses. If you are required to take one of these courses, it must be successfully completed within your first 24 credits taken at CCSU or you will not be allowed to register for courses at CCSU or any other CSU institution. You may complete this requirement at CCSU, at a special reduced rate, during the summer prior to your first year.

The Math Placement test is only given at The Learning Center (TLC), located in Copernicus 241. The Math Department does not conduct these tests. To take the Math Placement Test, you must call The Learning Center to schedule an appointment. You can reach TLC at: (860) 832-1900 or by visiting the TLC website.

Assistance for the Math Placement Test can be found at the Placement Test Help page.

Consider taking a placement exam if you think, after reading the course descriptions, you are prepared to succeed in a higher-level course than the one you are eligible to take. Mathematics course descriptions are found online at the Courses Offered page. If you are taking algebra II or higher in your senior year, you might consider taking the mathematics placement exam.

Placement Exams are offered by The Learning Center. Call (860) 832-1900 to sign up for a placement exam.

Yes. In fact, it is a good idea to do so.

An academic advisor will enroll you in the appropriate math course, based on the major you indicate on your First Year Interest Survey. You will learn more about your curriculum when you come to your Advising and Orientation Program this summer.

The MATH 101 Combination course combines both MATH 099 and 101. It meets 5 hours each week and covers an extensive amount of material. You should choose the MATH 101 Combination course if you are highly motivated and are willing to put in the extra effort. The benefit of successfully completing the Combination course is that you will satisfy the MATH 101 prerequisite, in a single semester, needed for other college level courses.
