Any student who has a high school math deficiency must take MTH 1260. Students with a high school math deficiency who need to take MTH 1450 for their major can take MTH 1260 at the same time as MTH 1450. Acceptable alternatives to MTH 1260 to remove a math deficiency are MTH 1280, 1310, 1340, 2240, 2280, 2300, 2310, 2320, or 2330. Students must still fulfill the proper prerequisite(s) for these courses.
Before an undergraduate student can take a mathematics class at Wright State University they must either:
- Have transfer credit from another college or university equivalent to the prerequisite course taught by Wright State University. More Information→
- Take the Wright State Math Placement Test and make the required placement level for the course in question. It is strongly recommended that the student spend some time reviewing before taking the placement test. If a student doesn't take a math class within 1 calendar year of taking the placement test, the student will have to re-take the test. The test can be taken on campus in Room 042 of Dunbar Library or at certain off-campus locations. Details can be found at the registration link below.
NOTE: Once a student has begun a math or statistics course or sequence, they cannot retake the math placement test.
Register for the Math Placement Test
NOTE: Students currently taking AP credit math courses in high school will still need to take the placement test. Students attaining a minimum ACT-Math score of 27 or SAT-Math score of 620 who have met all of their high school's math requirements may be exempted from taking the math placement test. Contact the University Testing Coordinator to see if you qualify for the exemption.
