For students completing START, all incoming students are required to take the ALEKS Placement Assessment. When determining your math course registration, your highest placement from the ALEKS Assessment, AP/IB scores, and previous college math courses will be considered. You will be able to register for your math course after completing the ALEKS Assessment, the remainder of the pre-advising module AND after participating in the Advising & Registration phase of START with your College Advisor.
Note: ALEKS scores are loaded into the OSU system twice each weekday (at 7:15 am and3:45 pm). If you took your assessment today, you will be able to register for your math course either after3:45 pm today or after7:15 am tomorrow.
