Math placement is typically determined by a student's score on the SAT Math, ACT Math, AP scores, or transfer credit.If your major does not require a specific Math and you do not wish to take College Algebra (Math 1065), or a higher level course, you may enroll in Math 1050 (Explorations in Mathematics) or Phil 1500 (Intro to Logic).
You can find the required scores for Math placement here.
If you do not have an appropriate test score to place into your desired math, you can take a placement test through the Math Department. However, these tests are only administered a few times a year. Placement test information can be found here.
It is best for Distance Education Students who need Math 1065 (College Algebra) to take an equivalent course prior to transferring to ECU. However, if a student transfers without this credit he/she will
need to take the placement test on the ECU campus, or make arrangements
locally to do so. Contact your local community college to see if they
have a testing center. If so, set up a date and time with one of their
proctors to take our Math Placement test. E-mail Gwen Hardin: email@example.com
the proctor's name, e-mail address, phone number, the name of the
college, and the date and time you will be testing. She will send the
Math Placement test to the proctor.
If you studied a language in high school, you are encouraged to take
the foreign language placement test. All students must take placement
test to enroll in German, Spanish, and French, even if you have no prior
experience. The Spanish, French and German foreign language placement
tests are administered online. Other languages maybe possible by special
arrangements with that department. Students who place into 1002-1004
will, upon successful completion of that course, be given credit for
lower-level courses. Please visit the Foreign Language website for more information.
