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 any college level math course 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.

Take the Required Practice Test
There are three (3) Math Placement Practice Tests: Algebra, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus. All students must start by taking the Practice Algebra 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).

Testing is available on a walk-in basis during the dates and times listed below. No appointments necessary. Check-in to Howard Phillips Hall 106.
Students can arrive anytime in between the designated hours. If you come after the walk-in period, you will not be able to start your test.
