All first time undergraduate students entering the College receive a Math Placement Level (MPL) as part of the admissions process. The level is determined by previously taken mathematics courses and SAT Math scores. College courses express math prerequisites in terms of the MPL. Students can raise their MPL by taking specific math courses or by taking Mathematics Placement Exams offered by the Math Department. You are encouraged to review the material in the sample exams posted below before taking an exam.
