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 high school transcripts and college entrance exam scores 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 is open for incoming summer 2021 students and for continuing students. New students should prepare for this test, and complete it no later than Friday, April 30, 2021. 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, but you will need time to prepare for that, so don't delay! (**Incoming fall 2021 students**: Please wait until early May 2021 when a new Math Readiness Test will be available.)
