Current UCF Students

The Math Placement Test (MPT) is required for all current students who have not earned a "C" (2.0) or better in MAT 1033-Intermediate Algebra and/or MAC 1105-College Algebra at UCF, or another college or university. The MPT must be taken prior to registering for UCF math courses or a student will need to begin their math sequence by enrolling in MAT 1033, Intermediate Algebra.

    It is your responsibility to review important information provided in the MPT Frequently Asked Questions prior to taking the test.

  2. Verify you are eligible to take the MPT

  4. Request Extended Time or Academic Accommodations for the MPT

    Students who believe they qualify for academic accommodations for placement tests and/or academic courses should contact Student Disability Services prior to starting the test to inquire about options available (sds@ucf.edu; 407-823-2371). If you are approved for placement test accommodations, please email mathplacement@ucf.edu so that your test settings can be adjusted.

  5. Take the Required Practice Test

    Once you obtain your Username (NID) and MyLabsPlus password, please go to www.ucf.mylabplus.com to access the Math Placement Test.

Students are required to complete the Practice Algebra Test and earn 35% or higher before proceeding to the actual Algebra test. Repeated attempts are possible on the practice tests if students would like to gain more experience. The practice test is untimed. Read the MPT Access Document for detailed instructions on how to access the Practice Test(s).
