At CU Boulder, students have several math courses to choose from, based on their intended major. While some courses do not require a prerequisite or prior math experience, others will require a math readiness test or the completion of prerequisite coursework.

We want to ensure that students are successful and prepared for the math courses in which they are enrolled. Students planning to register for a precalculus or calculus course should take the** math readiness test **first. The test score will be combined with other information including previously taken math courses, to place students in the appropriate course. Students who wish to improve their placement can take a **proctored online math placement test**. Note: there will also be on-campus proctored options available for students whose computers will not support the software or don't have a webcam.

**Summer 2021 Course Registration: **The Math Readiness Test for summer enrollment is now open. Students planning to register for summer classes should prepare for this test, and complete it ASAP. Then email mathplacement@colorado.edu afer submitting the test. If your placement is not what you expect, you can take a *proctored* online placement test on May 27th. Results will be posted the next day. If that becomes necessary you will need time to adequately prepare, so don't delay!

**Fall 2021 Course Registration**: The Math Readiness Test is now available for students enrolling in fall semester courses. Plan to take this test as soon as possible. If your placement is not what you expect, you can take a *proctored* online placement test later in August, but you will need time to adequately prepare, so don't delay! Students who take the test in May can expect to see their placement at the end of the month.
