Math Placement

Math Placement (MP) evaluates a student's math preparation and places them into the appropriate math course, and is required to enroll in a math course at UCSC.

Math Placement can be determined in one of the following ways:

If you are unsure of your math placement, follow the instructions for Verifying your Placement to view your assessment score, math test credit or math course credit in your MyUCSC Student Portal.  

If you wish to get a jump on math prior to attending UCSC, you can use ASSIST.ORG to find an equivalent math course at a California Community College.  

NOTE: UCSC math placement is not transferable. We do not provide assessment information to other universities as evidence of your math placement. Your placement is only valid for enrollment in UCSC math courses.
