Your Math Readiness Team



 

Incoming first-year students in the following areas must purchase the Math Readiness Package (for $50) and complete the online Quest materials with a recommended score of 70+ in each topic area to ensure preparation for the in-classroom UT Math Assessment that you will take at Orientation: 

  • College of Natural Sciences
  • McCombs School of Business (required for students who do not already have credit for M 408K or M 408C)
  • Jackson School of Geosciences
  • Cockrell School of Engineering
  • Liberal Arts majors in Economics
  • Liberal Arts majors in BS Psychology
  • Liberal Arts majors in BS Environmental Science
  • UGS (Undergraduate Studies) students planning to transfer into any of the colleges/majors listed above
  • Students interested in health sciences that may require calculus
  • Students pursuing any other degree requiring calculus
Students will have an opportunity to discuss their UT Math Assessment results during Orientation advising and can either place into Pre-Calculus (M305G – score of 55+) or Calculus I (M408C/K/N/R – score of 70+ with a recommended 78+ for M408C). UT Math Assessment scores must be in place for your course by the initial Math Department drop deadline of Tuesday, September 5th at 5pm.

First-year students purchasing the required Readiness package will complete the following steps:

  1. Purchase and complete the Quest online assessment and learning modules. Please follow the "Click to Download" link in your electronic receipt to be taken to Quest. A score of 70+ is recommended in each topic area to ensure adequate preparation for the UT Math Assessment and UT Math courses. First year students must have Quest readiness scores on file in order for the UT Math Assessment score to be valid.
  2. Take the UT Math Assessment at Orientation on the afternoon of Day 1 (no sign-up required for incoming first-year students)
  3. Talk with your advisor about whether to enroll in Pre-Calculus (M305G) or Calculus I (M408C/K/N/R). Your UT Math Assessment score from Orientation is your best indicator for math course placement. There is no “pass” or “fail” of this assessment (no stress required!); this is simply to ensure that you enroll in the best math class to transition from high school to college-level math.
  4. Did you miss your chance to take the UT Math Assessment on Orientation Day 1? No worries, we offer a makeup on the morning of Day 3. (Please note that students may not take the assessment twice at Orientation).

New transfer students in the areas above with credit for Calculus I or higher are exempt from the Math Readiness requirements unless enrolling in Pre-Calculus (M305G) or Calculus I (M408C/K/N/R) at UT this fall. New transfer students without credit for Calculus I or higher and in the areas above must follow the same steps as first-year incoming students to demonstrate math readiness. 

Continuing students who would like to refresh or improve their math skills are strongly encouraged to prepare for the UT Math Assessment by purchasing the Readiness package for $50 and completing the online Quest materials as preparation for the UT Math Assessment.
