WSU's Math Preparation & Learning Program

Correct mathematics placement and preparation are essential for your success and have the potential to save you both time and money. Your ACT or Accuplacer test score will be used to place you in a mathematics class. Both have limitations that may cause you to be placed in a math class above or below your current abilities.

That is why the College of Science and Engineering has initiated an online program that will help you:

  • Verify your mathematics placement
  • Prepare you for your first college level math class
