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.
