The purpose of the Mathematics Placement Tests is to make sure that incoming freshman and transfer students are prepared to take a Quantitative Inquiry Mathematics or Computer Science course at Chapman University. Our Math/CS advisors will consider your previous mathematics courses in helping you choose the right course. If you have already attended but did not pass an Intermediate Algebra (Math 098 or 099) or a Pre-Calculus (Math 104) course at Chapman University, you are not permitted to take these Placement Tests to pass the course.**PLEASE NOTE: **

- Students who score at least 650 on the Quantitative portion of the SAT, or who score at least 29 on the Mathematics portion of the ACT, may enroll directly in a Quantitative Inquiry Mathematics or Computer Science course (CPSC 230, MATH 110, MATH 203, MATH 208, MATH 250 or MATH 260).

- Students who get a score of 3 on the Advanced Placement Calculus AB Exam may enroll in MATH 110 without having to take the MATH 104 prerequisite.

- Students who get a score of 3 on the Advanced Placement Statistics Exam may enroll in MATH 203 without having to take the MATH 104 prerequisite.

- Students who get a score of 3 on the Advanced Placement Computer Science Exam may enroll in CPSC 230 without having to take the MATH 104 prerequisite.

- Students who score at least 500 on the Quantitative portion of the SAT, or who score at least 21 on the Mathematics portion of the ACT may enroll in MATH 104 without having to take MATH 98 or MATH 99.

All other students are required to take a Mathematics Placement test.

If you have questions, please contact Michael Fahy, Associate Dean of the School of Computational Sciences.

We offer two online tests: one to place into MATH 99: Intermediate Algebra or MATH 104: Pre-Calculus; the other to waive MATH 104 and place into a Quantitative Inquiry Mathematics or Computer Science course. Students who do not qualify to enroll in a Quantitative Inquiry Mathematics or Computer Science course and who do not take a Mathematics Placement Test will be placed into MATH 98: Elementary Algebra. **PLEASE NOTE: **

Any student who scored below a 500 on the SAT/Math or below 21 on the ACT/Math is REQUIRED to take the Algebra Placement Test by July 9th.

A HOLD will be placed on your record and you will not be able to register for classes until you have taken the appropriate Placement Test.

Contact Prof. Michael Fahy (fahy@chapman.edu) with a brief description of your mathematics background, if you believe you should be placed directly in a higher level Math/CS course.
