Math Placement Test

Register today for START 2016.  START is OSU's new students orientation, advising, and class registration program.  All new undergraduate students must attend in order to register for their fall term courses.

First Year Student Math Placement Test Instructions

All first year students, regardless of AP/IB credit and Smarter Balanced Assessment scores will be required to take the Math Placement Test online before attending their START program. Failure to complete the test before START will delay a student's advising and registration.

Transfer Student Math Placement Test Instructions

Transfer students who have not successfully completed college level math will be required to take the Math Placement Test online before START. College level math is defined as Math 111 (or equivalent) and above. If your college level math was taken more than 1 year ago, please contact your college directly to determine if you will need to take the Math Placement Test.

General instructions

The Math Placement Test is designed to assist academic advisors in placing you in the appropriate level of math given your current skill level. Therefore an accurate score on the Math Placement Test is vital in order to provide you with a correct placement.
