Placement Testing
Print This Page

The UMF Learning Assistance Center administers placement tests in mathematics and writing. These tests are designed to ensure that students meet minimum competencies in basic skills areas. Test results assist faculty advisors in assuring early and accurate placement of students in appropriate courses.

Students who, based on their placement test scores, are required to enroll in a developmental mathematics course must:       
  • enroll in their required developmental mathematics course within their first two semesters at UMF,

  • successfully complete the course by the end of their fourth semester (second year), and

  • enroll in their general education math course within one year of passing the developmental mathematics course, preferably in the next semester.
