ALEKS Math Placement Assessment

Most new students, including transfer students, who plan to register for a Western course that has a mathematics prerequisite must first take the ALEKS Math Placement Assessment (MPA) online. The MPA also serves as a prerequisite for some courses in other departments such as Astronomy, Chemistry, Computer Science, Decision Sciences, Economics, Environmental Science, Environmental Studies, Geology, Physics and Science Education. Students must first activate their Universal Account  in order to access the ALEKS MPA.
