**Process for Math Placement**

*First Semester Mathematics Course by Major*

Major |
Course # |
Course Name |
---|---|---|

Fire Safety Engineering Technology: Fire Safety Concentration |
MATH 1100 | College Algebra |

Fire Safety Engineering Technology: Fire Protection Concentration |
MATH 1103 | Pre-Calculus |

Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering Technology | MATH 1103 | Pre-Calculus |

Construction Management | MATH 1103 | Pre-Calculus |

Civil, Computer, Electrical, Mechanical, and Systems Engineering | MATH 1241 | Calculus I |

*Placement in the First Mathematics Course*

Students with AP or transfer math credit will be placed in their first mathematics course based on the class level of the credit received at the time of SOAR.^{1} If students do not have AP or math transfer credit, the math SAT score or math ACT equivalent will be used to place students in their first mathematics course.

SAT MATH |

---|---|---|---|---|

< 480 | < 18 | 1 | MATH 0900 | Math Study Skills/Algebra Review |

480 - 540 | 18 - 22 | 2 | MATH 1100 | College Algebra |

550 - 600 | 23 - 25 | 3 | MATH 1103 | Pre-Calculus |

610 - 800 | 26 - 36 | 4 | MATH 1103^{2} |
Pre-Calculus^{2} |

MATH 1241^{3} |
Calculus^{3} |

Transfer students^{4}, adult students, or international students who do not have a math SAT score, math ACT score, or math transfer credit will complete a hard copy mathematics placement test to determine their first mathematics course. The math placement test is a 25 question, 30 minute test. Calculators are not allowed. Visit http://math.uncc.edu/undergraduate-programs/math-placement to learn more about the math placement test and when it is offered.

During SOAR you will be introduced to options for moving up one mathematics level.

^{1} Students must contact their academic advisor when their AP or college transfer credit is available on their UNC Charlotte transcript. The advisor will assist them in revising their course schedule.

^{2} Engineering Technology and Construction Management students who have a math level 3 or 4 are required to take Pre-Calculus (MATH 1103). Students who have AP credit for Calculus will be placed in Calculus for Engineering Tecnology (MATH 1121).

^{3} This course is required for engineering majors.

^{4} Transfer students must complete Pre-Calculus with at least a grade of C in order to be admissible to engineering.
