USM College-Level Math Test

  • The USM College-Level Math Test is required only for those incoming students who want to enroll in a higher-level math course as their first math course at USM.  Students who have a SAT-MATH score of 550 or above (or ACT score of 23 or above) or students who have obtained a high score on the Math Placement Test (see above excerpt) have the option of taking the College-Level Math Test to determine if they have sufficient mathematical skills to enroll in a Pre-Calculus course.  Your College-Level Math score will determine if your scores are sufficient to enroll in the MAT 140 course.  Please see the links below for the Sample Test and the Math Placement Scoring Rubric.
