Math Enrollment

The math classes you take will depend on your major and interests. This document and the information below will help you determine your beginning math course at the University of Utah:

Enrollment Videos

Use our five math enrollment videos to help you determine which math course to take. 

If you have passed an AP or IB exam

Check the course equivalency for your AP or IB scores and be sure that they have been sent to Admissions.  Once the corresponding course is posted to your degree audit you will be able to register for the appropriate next math class.  If you have any questions please talk to an Academic Advisor.

If you have taken a math class at another institution

Make sure your college transcripts have been submitted to Admissions. If the course was taken outside of Utah you may also need to submit the Transfer Course Evaluation Form


(
If you are having trouble registering please see the Registration Issues page.)

ACCUPLACER INFORMATION

The Accuplacer is a math placement exam that can help you determine which course to start with.  The first time you take the Accuplacer is free.  The Accuplacer is a computer-based test, and this allows it to be adaptive to your particular skill level.  For example, if you do well on the first questions, it may skip questions that may be too easy for you, and move directly on to a more difficult type of question.  All students begin with the Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra and Statistics (QAS) questions.  With a QAS score of at least 260 you will be moved into the Advanced Algebra and Functions (AAF) questions.  Our Math Placement Guide can help you decide which math course to take based on an Accuplacer score.

  • There is a free study app that you can download from accuplacer.org -> Click on ”Information for Students” -> “Practice Resources” -> “Get the free Accuplacer practice app.” -> Create a free account. We are using the “Next-Generation Practice Tests”. 
  • Lecture Videos:
    • There are some math videos on our website (the videos start with Math 1010), click here.
    • A lot of students also like the videos on Khan Academy, click here.

If you have questions about your score or about which math class is most appropriate for you, please email the Math Advisors or the advisor for your major.
