Math Level Placement based on SAT or ACT Math Score
New first-year students who do not have a math SAT score, math ACT score or math transfer credit, or who wish to improve their math placement, please visit the Math Placement Testing page for more details.
|MATH LEVEL (ML)||PLACEMENT||COURSE|
|< 510||< 18||1||MATH 0900||Math Study Skills/Algebra Review|
|510 – 560||18 – 22||2||MATH 1100||College Algebra|
|570 – 620||23 – 25||3||MATH 1103||Pre-Calculus|
|630 – 800||26 – 36||4||MATH 1241||Calculus I|
Students with AP or transfer math credit will be placed in their first mathematics course based on the class level of the credit received at the time of New Student Orientation.1 If students do not have AP or math transfer credit, the math SAT score or math ACT equivalent (whichever is higher) will be used to place students in their first mathematics course.
Transfer students should visit the Transfer Students site for comprehensive details specific to each College of Engineering major.
1 Students must contact their major advisor when their AP or college transfer credit is available on their UNC Charlotte transcript. The advisor will assist them in revising their course schedule.
