 Note that MCLG test scores are from the Math 100 final for placement and are different from PPL Scores. For Example, MCLG 55 is required for Math 108/112 placement, vs. PPL 40 for Math 108/112 placement. MCLG 40 is required for Math 105, 106, 107 placement vs. PPL 30 for Math 105, 106, 107 placement.

 Testing Information the placement test is for entry into courses at or below the level of Math 122A/B and 125. Test scores are good for one year.
 4/21/20 Update  The ALEKS PPL Math Placement Assessment (test) is now available.
 Testing is generally available March 1the first week of Fall classes (around January 1), and then October 1 through the first week of classes (around Jan 20).
 All tests are proctored, primarily through Examity, an online proctoring service.
 Examity Proctoring Quick Guide  Students will need this guide to navigate the testing process.
 Incoming freshman can qualify through recent SAT I MSS (Math) or ACT MATH scores (2019 or 2020 scores for Fall 2020 freshmen).
 All test scores expire after one year. This generally means that SAT and ACT placement is only good for Fall and Spring of the first year for freshman (Spring only for incoming Spring freshman).
 Students should read this Testing Information document before taking the PPL Assessment.
 About the ALEKS PPL Assessment
 Incoming students access ALEKS PPL information and access Examity testing through the Next Steps Center.
 For incoming Freshmen or incoming international students: To access the test through the Next Steps Center, Enrollment fee must be marked as paid in Next Steps and student must be registered for orientation.
 UA Online covers testing fees for their students.
 Incoming Transfer, readmits, NDS, etc. must determine if test is required (Are they done with math requirement? Do they have recent (within 18 months) and appropriate prerequisite? Do they have a placement test score less than one year old?). There is a $26 testing fee.
 Test is not required for most Transfer students. Access to the Examity proctoring is through the Next Steps Center. Students may need to refresh check list in Next Steps for this portion to update.
 Students can enroll in Math 100 and SAS 100AX without any test scores.
 Current students test online with Examity through their D2L site. We will also offer some Math Department Zoom proctored testing in the Summer. Testing Instructions for current students.
 Incoming students access ALEKS PPL information and access Examity testing through the Next Steps Center.

Other Updates, reminders:
New for FALL 2020:
 Changes to test scores for Math 108, 112, 125, MCB 181L/R, CHEM 141/143, 151, 152, 161/163, PHYS 102.
 Math 111 is no longer offered. Students in Architecture and Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences should take Math 108.
 Fall incoming freshman who place into Math 100 also take SAS 100AX and participate in Schedule for Success (S4S). NonS4S students do not need to take SAS 100AX if they take Math 100.
Reminders:
 New Courses Fall 2019, Spring 2020
 Math 108  for Architecture and Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences only, same placement as Math 112. Note that Math 108 works like Math 112 if a student switches out of one of these majors. It will satify the Math 112 requirement, in general, and works like Math 112 as a prerequisite to courses like CHEM 141/151, MCB 181L/R, PHYS 102, Math 113 (C required), Math 116 (C and MIS 111 required), Math 120R, Math 163, Math 263, SBS 200, ISTA 116, and other courses.
 Math 119A  for Psychological Sciences, Physio, EEB, Biology, and MCB majors only, same placement as Math 120R. Is not a prerequisite to Math 129. Math 119A is a prerequisite to courses like CHEM 141/151, MCB 181L/R, PHYS 102, Math 163, Math 263, SBS 200, ISTA 116, and other courses.
 Minor changes to SAT, ACT, and PPL scores for some courses.
 Math 111 and 109C are no longer offered.
 PSY 230 is now a gstrand math course.
 We are using a new test for Fall 2018, ALEKS PPL.
 All incoming Fall freshmen enrolled in Math 100 will participate in Schedule For Success.
 New Course, Math 106, for Elementary Education majors only. Same placement as Math 105 and 107.
 Math 109C will be offered for the last time for GRO only in Fall 2018.
 Please direct students to placement@math.arizona.edu for transfer, test score, placement testing, registration, or other placement related questions. A team of staff help respond to these inquiries.
 Incoming students should be directed to their Next Steps Center. There are special math links there that are specific to the incoming student groups.
 Spring 2018 (or for fall 2017 incoming students) Math 111+112 is not a pathway to Math 122A/B. Students who place into Math 112 would then take Math 120R before taking Math 122A/B.
 A grade of C or higher in Math 112 is required for entry into Math 113 or 116 (also requires MIS 111).
 New course, Math 106, to replace Math 105 for students in the College of Education.
 Math 107 info sheet.
 Can replace Math 109C/112 for the following majors: Care, Health, and Society, Communication (as prerequisite to SBS 200), Criminal Justice, Family Studies and Human Development, Information Science and Arts, Political Science, Psychology BA (not BS), Public Management and POlicy, Regional Development, Sociology, or majors that allow Math 105 (except some in the College of Education, consult advisor.)
 Is a prerequisite to SBS 200 and ISTA 116 (note that stats courses are NOT prerequisite to lab sciences courses).
 Is NOT a prerequisite to Math courses or lab science courses like MCB 181L/R, PHYS 102, CHEM 141/151.
 Changes to Math 111, Summer 2016  the test score is now higher than Math 112. This means students need a higher test score to take Math 111 and 112 at the same time.
 Note that UA Math 111 is a 2 unit course and cannot satisfy a foundation math requirement. A transfer 3unit Math 111 course can satisfy Mstrand (Math 109C/112) or Gstrand (Math 105) requirement. Contact placement@math.arizona.edu .
 We have several math requirement designators attached to transfer math courses that do not have a UA equivalent, but can satisfy a requirement.
 RD G105 is attached to a course that will satisfy UA Math 105
 RD M116 is usually attached to a course that transfers as Math 113 (not dual enrollment) and means the course will satisfy UA Math 116.
 RD M112 is attached to a course that will satisfy Math 112 requirement, but is not a prerequisite to other math or science courses.
 RD GSTA is attached to a low level statistics course that seems to have similar content to courses like UA Math 163, Psyc 230, SBS 200, but does not have a college algebra (Math 112) or higher level prerequisite. The course can satisfy the Gstrand math requirement (Math 105), or a major statistics requirement (Math 163, Psyc 230, SBS 200), but NOT BOTH. GSTA courses cannot satisfy a Mstrand foundation math (Math 112) requirement.
 Pima no longer has a precalculus course. It is now split into two courses: MAT 188 (transfers as UA Math 112) and MAT 189 (transfers as UA Math 111).
 LING 123 is a new Gstrand foundation math course. Majors that allow PHIL 110 for the foundation math course will also allow LING 123. There is no placement test requirement for this course.
 Other:
 Around June 1 of every year, we allow student to enroll in Fall Math 129, 223, or 254 if the student is enrolled in the prerequisite outside UA over summer. Students can add through UAccess. We check prerequisite and contact students who do not seem to meet the requirement starting in early August. We do not drop student until right before classes begin, but only after attempting to contact them several times. Students must register prior to August 1 and must show proof of completion of the prerequisite prior to the first day of classes.
 We do not add students to math courses other than honors Math 129 or 223. Please direct students to add through UAccess.
 Incoming students can find information about math transfer evaluation, review, retesting, find test scores and placement message, and other items through the Math Placement link in their Next Steps Center.
