Placement Exam

The Math Department requires an exam for placement in many courses. Based on your exam results, the department will enter a BMAT score into your Banner student record. Your BMAT score determines the classes in which you are allowed to register and stays valid for one year. The exam is given in two parts, each with a 30 minute time limit, and your combined results on each part determine your BMAT score (see below). Both parts of the exam must be taken in the same session, and you must pass Part 1 in order to be allowed to take Part 2. You may only take the exam one time per exam window – see the Repeat Policy below for additional details.

Update, July 21 2021: On-campus Math Placement Exams

We have received University approval to resume in person placement exams. All UH COVID-19 policies must be followed for the in person sessions including face masks, social distancing, and check-in using LumiSight (https://uh.campus.lumisight.com/):  Students must do LumiSight and show proctors proof of clearance to be allowed into the test room. Due to limited space and to adhere to safety protocols we cannot accept walk-ins for these sessions. All test takers must have a reservation.

The following dates and times are scheduled:

  • Monday, August 16th – 3:30pm and 4:30pm
  • Wednesday, August 25th – 4:00pm and 5:00pm
  • Thursday, August 26th – 4:00pm and 5:00pm
Request a Reservation

** New Incoming Students may pick up an UH ID from the Student Campus Center**

BS in Mathematics and Chemistry

PHYS 170, 170L, 272, 272L; MATH 244 or 253A can be double counted in the Mathematics and Chemistry majors. The 15 related credits for Mathematics and the upper division Chemistry credits may be satisfied by the same courses.

BS in Mathematics and Computer Science

BS in Computer Science Data Science Track and BS in Mathematics Data Science track:

Math 301, Math 307, Math 372, ICS 211 and 435 may be double counted in both majors. Math 472 can be substituted for Math 372 and Math 311 can be substituted for Math 307 in the
requirements for the BS in Computer Science Data Science Track and, in that case, can be double counted in both majors.

BS in Computer Science Data Science Track and BS in Mathematics General Track:

Math 301 and 307 can be double counted in both majors. Math 311 can be substituted for Math 307 in the requirements for the BS in Computer Science Data Science Track and, in that case, can be double counted in both majors. Up to an additional 9 credits in upper division computer science courses may count towards the 15 related credits for the math
requirements.

BS in Computer Science General Track and BS in Mathematics Data Science Track:

Up to five computer science courses may be double counted in both majors.

BS in Computer Science General Track and BS in Mathematics General Track:

The 15 related credits for mathematics and the upper division computer science credits may be satisfied by the same courses.
