Who Takes the Exam?
Graduate students are not required to take a math placement exam. Most undergraduate students are required to take the math placement exam. However, you are waived from the requirement if:
- You have transferred in a math course from another college or university equivalent to a 100-level or above math course at IU South Bend.
- You took an IU South Bend math course as a high school student and received credit for it.
- You were granted credit for an Advanced Placement (AP) exam, IB exam, or A level exam.
- You took the math placement exam at IU Bloomington or IUPUI (we do not accept placement exam scores from any other college/university).
