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 who have paid their enrollment deposit will receive an email with instructions about taking the MPT. Students who do not meet prerequisites for mathematics courses are required to take the MPT, and 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.
