Your math placement goal is to strive for the score associated with the entry-level math course required for your major. However, if (after several attempts) you cannot achieve the score needed to enroll, discuss your options with your adviser during New Student Orientation or when you have your next appointment.
Keep in mind you do not want to enroll in a math course for which you are not prepared. So, if you cannot comfortably achieve the preferred score, aim for the score associated with an "acceptable course". Do the best you can recognizing it is best to enroll in an appropriate math course aligned with your skills.
To determine the score and entry math course needed for your major, know your major and your college. Once you have this information, go to the following link:
Math Placement goal by college and major
(If you score higher than the score needed for a particular math course, you can still enroll in that course. For example, you can enroll in Math 114 College Math and Statistics if your score is 70.)
