If the student has taken the SAT, the following table will indicate the corresponding Math course appropriate to the SAT Math score:

 


SAT Math Score

Math Placement

500 & higher

Exempt from Accuplacer Testing

Eligible for MAT 101, 104, 107, 123, and BUS 115

Precalculus and Calculus Placement

500 - 549

and the student wants Precalculus

Precalculus placement based upon general math diagnostic test (may place into MAT 014, MAT 129A or MAT 129)

550 or higher

And student wants Precalculus

Exempt from MAT 014

Eligible for MAT 129A or 129 (student’s choice)

550 - 649

Eligible to register for MAT 131 or MAT 131A if NCWS screen demonstrates a “C” or better in high school precalculus. We must have the final grade. A student without high school precalculus must take the precalculus test

650 and higher

Student may choose MAT 129A, 129, 131 or 131A

 

For Math, if a student's score places the student into MAT 010, 013 or 014, a challenge test is permitted for all score results. The following table provides the "cut scores" for the different Math challenges and the Precalculus Diagnostic Test.

 

MAT 010

0-19 (remains in MAT 010)
20-30 (passes out of MAT 010)
MAT 013 0-17 (remains in MAT 013)
18-25 (passes out of MAT 013)
MAT 014 0-17 (remains in MAT 014)
18-25 (passes out of MAT 014)
Precalculus

0-14 (must register for MAT 090/129A)
15-19 (MAT 129A)
20 -29 (MAT 129)
30-32 (MAT 131)
