Math Placement Assessment
Foreign Language Placement Test
You are responsible for completing the following mandatory requirements by January 2, 2023:
Complete your course assessments and surveys. Completing your Placement Assessments prior to meeting with your academic advisor during your NSO experience will help you and your advisor determine the appropriate courses for you to take. You can complete your Placement Assessments at home and online.
Complete the mandatory math placement assessment.
How do I know if I need to take the Math Placement Assessment? Students should go to the Math Determination Form, which lays out the information and provides more specifics to their major.
Math Placement Assessment is required for all this year. The only exception is for those that have SAT or ACT Math test scores at MSU currently ACT Math score of 28 or higher or an SAT Math score of 660. The key is that the score must currently be on file at MSU. They can check their Admissions account to see if the score is there. If a student does not do the placement, they cannot be pre-enrolled in the appropriate math for their major and may need to take additional math courses for graduation. Without a placement score, students can only get into the lowest level of math as the placement score is a pre-requisite for higher ones.
Complete the writing directed self-placement prior to your advising appointment – don’t wait!
There are also language placement assessments if you are interested in placing out of your language requirement (if required for your major) or continuing a foreign language.
To support your success, you must complete the Access & Technology Survey.
All students must complete the online vaccination verification form to provide their current vaccination status to MSU. Incoming first-year and transfer students are not eligible for online exemptions at this time*.
*International students – Please continue to monitor your MSU email for further information from the Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS).
