Congratulations on your admission and welcome to the University of Texas at Austin! We look forward to having you join us on the Forty Acres this fall.


As part of the College Readiness Program, the University is offering two math assessment options for students at Orientation. UT offers a variety of Math courses and the math assessments are simply a way for the University to ensure that students are placed into the math class that best fits their needs and requirements this fall.

  • Students admitted to Natural Sciences, Engineering, Geosciences, Business, or who are pursuing pre-professional health sciences, Economics, B.S. Psychology, and other majors requiring Calculus must purchase a Math Readiness Package and complete the online ALEKS assessment as preparation for the paper and pencil UT Math Assessment at Orientation. Click here or on the gray Math Assessment button to your right to learn more and get started with the Math Readiness Package.
  • All other students will have the option to take a test, given at the same time, that gives credit for M305G and can fulfill their core math requirement in many degree plans.

Students planning to take CH 301 (the first majors-level Chemistry course) this fall will be required to purchase and complete ALEKS Chemistry to place into the course. Not all incoming majors will take CH 301 this fall, and if you are unsure whether or not you will take CH 301 in the fall, do not purchase the ALEKS Chemistry assessment until after you have had a chance to talk to your advisor at Orientation (no refunds will be issued). Please click here or on the burnt orange Chemistry Assessment link to your right to learn more about ALEKS Chemistry.
