Math Placement Test

Please refer to the University Catalog to check if you need to take a math placement test. In general, if you are required to take a math course at NDNU, you will be asked to take the math placement test.

The test is administered on the computer and calculators are not allowed. The computerized test is adaptive and takes about 1 to 1.5 hours, depending on the student’s response. You will be tested on elementary algebra, then arithmetic and/or college level math, depending on the result of your previous test.

Please read the Math Placement Test Guide for more information about the test.
