Welcome UCF Knight! The University believes that appropriate placement of students into certain course sequences is important to help foster an environment of success. The UCF Math Placement Test (MPT) is administered to determine placement into the mathematics course sequence. The MPT will help students, with the assistance of their academic advisors, select math courses in which they are most prepared and will likely be successful.
To avoid being placed in a math course that may not accurately reflect your skills and abilities, students should do their best and take the test seriously as the results will determine their math course sequence. As a student at UCF, you are expected to uphold the UCF Creed and demonstrate the highest standard of academic and personal integrity. Participating in a behavior that violates academic integrity (e.g. cheating, using an unapproved calculator, giving or receiving assistance, fraudulently altering test results, etc.) contradict these values, and may result in sanctions if found in violation of academic misconduct policies. Students are expected to familiarize themselves with and follow the University’s Rules of Conduct.
Incoming freshmen entering UCF will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org about seven (7) business days after they have paid their UCF enrollment deposit with their username (NID) and MyLabsPlus password needed to access the MPT. All incoming freshmen must complete the MPT, including those who have already received accelerated credit (AP/IB/dual enrollment). Students are strongly recommended to complete the MPT prior to attending Orientation. If the MPT is not completed prior to Orientation delays in registration for mathematics courses may result. The MPT should be taken from the convenience of a computer with a secure and strong internet connection.
Starting February 1st, 2016, students who meet certain criteria will have the option to retake the Math Placement Test for a cost of $35. Retakes must be completed in a proctored test environment scheduled at the University Testing Center at UCF. For more information and to verify if you are eligible to retake the MPT, please email us at email@example.com.
