1. Placement Assessments
Before you begin selecting classes you will need to take your Math Placement Assessment and possibly the Language Placement Assessment.
REQUIRED (All New Students) - Math Placement Assessment (ALEKS)
ALEKS Math Placement
In order to register for a math course, you must have an ALEKS score. The assessment will ask up to 30 questions. You should plan to complete the assessment in one 2-3 hour sitting.
*Students with transfer credits that have been evaluated and accepted to Kutztown as MAT 017, Introduction to Mathematics, have met this requirement and do not have to take the placement exam. If you are transferring into a major that requires more than introductory math, you must take the assessment.
Questions about the math placement exam, visit the Math Placement website or contact Dr. Paul Ache, Chair of the Department of Mathematics, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-683-4410.
