Cutoff Scores and Placement Messages for 2011-2012
Placement into the math courses is based on the student’s ALEKS Math exam score. All new freshmen enrolling during the 2011-2012 academic year are required to take this placement exam prior to registration. It is administered online through ALEKS.com.
Transfer students who intend to enroll in a Calculus I or lower-level math class are also required to take the ALEKS Math placement exam.
Cutoff scores and course placement recommendations are derived in collaboration with the Mathematics Department and are reviewed annually. The policies below apply to all students entering Illinois in Summer 2011, Fall 2011, or Spring 2012.

The ALEKS Math Placement Exam does not award proficiency credit. Proficiency tests are given separately.
