WHEN: Math placement exams are administered on a daily basis in the Testing Center. This excludes summer orientation groups which are tested in larger facilities on campus during specified times.

REGISTRATION: It is highly recommended that you contact us at 765-285-1290 to schedule an appointment. Walk-ins will be accommodated only as our schedule permits.

ADMINISTRATION TYPE: Computer Based

RE-TESTS:  The math placement test may be retaken one time.
