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.
The Math Placement Test is now past due for all students who started Spring classes on Monday, January 6th at UCF. At this time, you still have access to the Practice Tests and optional Study Plan. Students who earn 35% or higher on the practice test will proceed by taking the actual Algebra test in a proctored setting at the University Testing Center at UCF. Available dates can be found on the Current Students page.
Incoming freshmen entering UCF who have paid their enrollment deposit will receive an email with instructions about taking the MPT. Students are strongly recommended to complete the MPT prior to attending Orientation; however, the due date to complete the MPT is the Friday before the start of your first semester at UCF. Students who have their MPT results available at Orientation will be able to receive assistance from their academic advisor to select the most appropriate math course. Students who have not taken the MPT by their scheduled Orientation date should expect a delay in registering for a math course at UCF. The MPT should be taken from the convenience of a computer with a secure internet connection.
