Math Placement Testing
Almost all students entering UW at the freshman or sophomore levels will be taking mathematics courses as part of their graduation requirements. We want to take this opportunity to acquaint you with the special procedures that are used to check prerequisites for math courses prior to registration. Knowledge of these policies in advance of registration will facilitate your enrollment in an appropriate math class with a minimum of delay or disappointment.
All UW math courses have carefully stated prerequisites which are detailed in Prerequisite Information; the Department of Mathematics considers adherence to these prerequisites essential in assuring that each student has the best possible opportunity for academic success.
In accordance with this policy all students registering for a math course will have their records checked in order to determine whether the prerequisite is satisfied. A computerized prerequisite check is run approximately one week prior to the start of the every semester.
Students who register early for a math course but have not satisfied the prerequisites at the time of the check will be automatically dropped from the course.For further questions contact David Anton, Math Placement Coordinator, Ross Hall 30, 307-766-6577.
