MATH PLACEMENT EXAM 10

The Mathematics Placement (MP) Examination is for new freshmen and new transfer students entering Kettering University. University policy states that all entering students who have not received transfer credit or Advanced Placement credit for the first calculus course, MATH-101, are required to take the MP Exam. We realize that students who take their AP Exams in the spring will not receive their exam score from the College Board until the end of June/ early July. These students should go ahead and take the MP Exam. Your AP Exam score will always take precedence over the MP Exam score. Our experience shows that a student’s score on the MP Exam is the most direct and effective indicator of the student’s math skills. The placement examination has one goal: to place the student in the course which best

matches the student's university major and mathematics skill level.

NOTE 1: The MP Exam will be activated for new students once they have paid their $300 enrollment deposit to Kettering University. NOTE 2: Your score on the MP Exam will not affect the status of your admission to Kettering University. Process The MP Examination is administered on-line, prior to the start of your 1st term at Kettering. The MP Exam may be taken at most twice. If you neglect to take the MP Exam, and you do not have Calculus I credits, you’ll be placed into MATH-100 - College Mathematics. Questions about the MP Exam may be directed to: Nancy Stock in the Mathematics Dept., email: nstock@kettering.edu, or 800-955-4464 x7999, (810-762-7999). 10
