All incoming freshmen are required to complete the math placement process. If you are submitting advanced placement or other sources of college credit, these credits will be evaluated and, if appropriate, applied toward your degree. While it may be possible that you would not need to take the course into which you placed, the placement results will aid your advisor in better understanding your mastery of concepts included in prerequisite math courses. This information will also be beneficial to you in your approach to your first term at DePaul as you can review math concepts that may present a greater challenge or those you have not studied for a while.
Students transferring in math credit will be exempt from the Math Placement Process as outlined in the above grid. Transfer students who intend to inter-college transfer, to double major in another program, or to earn a dual degree in a different program with higher math requirements than the one outlined by their current primary major are urged to take the math placement test in order to measure readiness for the more rigorous math in store for them. Your transfer credit must be noted on your DePaul record for you to be exempt. All external credit should be sent to the Office of Admission.
