Math Placement Test Scoring Guidelines

Now that you've taken your math placement tests and received your scores, it's time to plan your next step towards a degree pathway. In the tables below, you'll find listings of every UC Blue Ash College major and program and how your math placement test score relates to the program requirements. 

These are the minimum scores required to place into a college-level math course. If your score is lower than the minimum, additional course(s) will be needed to build your foundational skills and could add time to your degree completion. You will be able to discuss the options in order to reach your educational goals during New Student Orientation or in your first meeting with your Academic Advisor.
