Mathematics Readiness


spring 2019

The UT Math Readiness Assessment (UTMA) tests your calculus skills to ensure that you register for the course that aligns with your abilities.  The intent of the assessment is focused on your academic success and graduation within four years of entering the university. 

First-year students entering the university are required to complete the UTMA and to purchase the Math Readiness Package for any college/major/area of interest listed. 

The UTMA also applies to incoming transfer students who have not earned transferrable credit for Calculus I or higher for any college/major/area of interest listed. 

  • College of Natural Sciences
  • McCombs School of Business
  • Jackson School of Geosciences
  • Cockrell School of Engineering
  • Liberal Arts majors in Economics and majors in BS Psychology
  • Undergraduate Studies majors planning to transfer into any colleges/majors listed above
  • Students who intend to pursue health sciences or any other degree that may require Calculus

You will have online access to the Math Readiness Package after your purchase.  Please follow the "Click to Download" link in your electronic receipt to be taken to the Quest warm-up assessment.

You must complete the Quest warm-up assessment prior to taking the UTMA.  

Continuing students who would like to refresh or improve their math skills are strongly encouraged to prepare for the UTMA by completing the Math Readiness Package including the online Quest warm-up assessment and learning modules.

Our data suggests that students who correctly answer 70% or higher of attempted practice problems are generally successful in Calculus I at UT.  Your score on the warm-up assessment should guide your progress in the learning modules.
