Math Placement

All students entering NMU are required to take one of the following math placement exams unless college-level credit in mathematics has already been earned and will transfer appropriately to NMU.

For additional information and requirements please visit: MATHEMATICS PLACEMENT FAQ

MATHEMATICS PLACEMENT EXAMS: 

MATHEMATICS PLACEMENT TEST 
(taken DURING ORIENTATION by traditional students coming straight from high school and all others who are attending an in-person orientation session)

OR

MATHEMATICS DIAGNOSTIC TEST 
(taken ONLY by students participating in online orientation, as well as applicants to the Electrical Line program and dually-enrolled high school students)

Both exams provide equally valid mathematics placement.

NOTE: If you take the online Math Diagnostic Test before 11:00 AM you will be able to register that same afternoon.  If you take it after 11:00 AM you will not be able to register until the following day after 6:00 AM.

The online Math Diagnostic Test is available online from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. seven days a week.  It will take less than an hour to complete.  Calculators are not allowed.
