Math Placement

Every major at UCF requires at least one college-level math course; therefore, all students must take the Math Placement Test (MPT). The MPT is an assessment of math skills that students have acquired and is designed to determine proficiency level and placement for math courses.

Incoming freshmen are strongly recommended to complete the MPT prior to attending Orientation; however, the due date to complete the MPT is the Friday before the start of your first semester at UCF. Students who have their MPT results available at Orientation will be able to receive assistance from their academic advisor to select the most appropriate math course. Students who have not taken the MPT by their scheduled Orientation date should expect a delay in registering for a math course at UCF. Incoming freshman will be sent an email from within 7 business days of paying their enrollment deposit with login credentials and instructions on how to complete the test.

Current and Transfer students who have not earned credit for MAT 1033-Intermediate Algebra or earned “C” (2.0) or better in MAC 1105-College Algebra at UCF, or another college or university will need to email to request access to the MPT (if eligible).

Please visit the University Testing Center website for information on the Math Placement Test.

Chemistry Placement

To register for CHM 2045C, you must earn a passing score in the Chemistry Placement Test webcourse. Students interested in majors that require CHM 2045 are recommended to take this test. For majors that require only CHS 1440C, the placement test is not required, however, CHS 1440C will not satisfy the pre-requisite for CHM 2046.

To register for the Chemistry Placement Exam, visit your UCF Student Home Page at There you will find a link to register for Placement Exams, including the Chemistry Placement Test, via Webcourses. Once you register for the Chemistry Placement Test, it will appear in your Dashboard in This course contains the exam as the only assignment. The home page of that course includes a description of the exam and the score required to pass.

Please make sure that you read the instructions carefully before entering the exam.
