Math Placement 

Mathematics faculty will make a recommendation for each incoming student regarding which course(s) to take to complete the College’s Quantitative Essential Proficiencies requirement.  This will be based on one or more of the following pieces of information:

–standardized test math subscore;

–math courses taken in high school and grades earned in them;

–perceived area of study of interest in college.

Our recommendation(s) are recorded on a green sheet of paper which is placed in the student’s advising folder.

Students with a math subscore on the ACT of less than 19 (or its equivalent) will initially be placed in MAT 115 Liberal Arts Mathematics.  Exceptions to this placement can be made by the MPC Department Chair or the Mathematics Program Coordinator.

Continuous Enrollment Policy

Beginning with the third semester of full-time enrollment, any student who has not completed the quantitative proficiency requirement must enroll in a course that completes this requirement and in each subsequent semester must enroll in such a course until he/she completes the course with a grade of D or better, or transfers in a course deemed to satisfy the requirement.  For students falling under the requirement of continuous enrollment, drops during the semester can only be approved by the MPC Department Chair or the Mathematics Program Coordinator.
