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.


Congratulations! You are a UT Longhorn. You have worked hard your entire academic career to hear those words, so take a moment to savor them. UT offers a variety of math courses and these assessments are simply a way for the University to ensure that students are placed into or receive credit for the math class that best fits their needs and requirements this fall. All new students will have an opportunity to meet with an academic advisor at Orientation to discuss their options.

The University offers two math assessment options for students at First-Year Orientation:

  • 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 or students looking to transfer into any of the areas above must purchase and complete the online Math Readiness material in Quest 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 an assessment at Orientation with the possibility to earn credit for M305G, which can fulfill a core math requirement in many degree plans.

Students planning to take CH 301 (the first majors-level chemistry course) this fall are 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.
