Check the Mathematics Placement Table below to determine which course(s) you are eligible to take, based on your ALEKS Math Placement Test score.

If you are satisfied with your math placement, no further action is required. If you want to try to improve your math placement, you can take the ALEKS Math Placement Test again. You are allowed to re-test a maximum of 4 times. Your highest score will be used for placement. Before re-testing, you must complete at least 3 hours of study/review using the ALEKS Learning Module.

Your Learning Module will be available for 1 year after your initial Math Placement test; however, once you begin working in a Learning Module, you will have access for 6 months. Additional access to ALEKS can be purchased, if needed, by contacting: mathplacement@math.oregonstate.edu.

Note: You will not be permitted enroll in any courses above your score range, but may enroll in courses below your score range.

If your score was below 15%, you did not place into any OSU Mathematics courses. You have a couple of options.

You can either:

- Use a Learning Module in ALEKS to review and learn, then take another Math Placement Test to try to improve your placement.
- Consider dual-enrollment with a local community college, such as Linn Benton Community College, for the appropriate prerequisite course(s).
