 Math 100 Information

 Math 100 FAQs
 Note that MCLG test scores are from the Math 100 final for placement and are different from PPL Scores. For Example, MCLG 55 is required for Math 108/112 placement, vs. PPL 40 for Math 108/112 placement. MCLG 40 is required for Math 106, 107 placement vs. PPL 30 for Math 106, 107 placement.

 Math Placement Information
 Current Students
 Incoming students: go to the Next Steps Center and see information on the pages below
 The PPL Assessment the placement test is for entry into courses at or below the level of Math 122A/B and 125. Test scores are good for one year.
 All tests are proctored, primarily through Respondus, an online proctoring service.
 Respondus Proctoring Quick Guide  Students will need this guide to navigate the testing process.
 Incoming freshman can qualify through recent SAT I MSS (Math) or ACT MATH scores (For fall 2021, scores are from 8/1/2019present).
 All test scores expire after one year. This generally means that SAT and ACT placement is only good for Fall and Spring of the first year for freshman (Spring only for incoming Spring freshman).
 About the ALEKS PPL Assessment
 Incoming students access ALEKS PPL information and access Respondus Montior for proctoring through the Next Steps Center.
 For incoming first year student or incoming international students: To access the test through the Next Steps Center, Enrollment fee must be marked as paid in Next Steps and student must be registered for orientation.
 UA Online and Global Direct campuses cover PPL Assessment fees for their students.
 Incoming Transfer, readmits, NDS, etc. must determine if the PPL Assessment is required (Are they done with math requirement? Do they have recent (within 18 months) and appropriate prerequisite? Do they have a placement test score less than one year old?). There is a $26 testing fee.
 The PPL Assessment is not required for most Transfer students. Access to the Respondus proctoring is through the Next Steps Center.
 Students can enroll in Math 100 and SAS 100AX without any test scores.
 Current students access the PPL Assessment here.

 Current Students  Transfer Credit Report
 TRANSFER CREDIT REPORT: PPL scores may appear as "NO RULE" or "REJECTED". This does not mean the test score is rejected, only that the score does not award credit. These scores are still valid for placement for one year (15 months).

Other Updates, reminders:
New for FALL 2021:
 PPL Assessment proctored using Respondus Monitor and no longer using Examity.
 48 (not 24) hour waiting period between attempts at the PPL Assessment
 No appointment necessary
 Does not work with a Chromebook
 Access the PPL Assessment here or though the Next Steps Center.
Reminders:
 Around June 1 of every year, we allow student to enroll in Fall Math 129, 223, or 254 if the student is enrolled in the prerequisite outside UA over summer. Students can add through UAccess. We check prerequisite and contact students who do not seem to meet the requirement starting in early August. We do not drop student until right before classes begin, but only after attempting to contact them several times. Students must register prior to August 1 and must show proof of completion of the prerequisite prior to the first day of classes.
 We do not add students to math courses other than honors Math 129 or 223. Please direct students to add through UAccess. In summer, we also add students to Math 100.
 Incoming students can find information about math transfer evaluation, review, retesting, find test scores and placement message, and other items through the Math Placement link in their Next Steps Center.
 New Courses Fall 2019, Spring 2020

 Math 108  for Architecture and Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences only, same placement as Math 112. Note that Math 108 works like Math 112 if a student switches out of one of these majors. It will satify the Math 112 requirement, in general, and works like Math 112 as a prerequisite to courses like CHEM 141/151, MCB 181L/R, PHYS 102, Math 113 (C required), Math 116 (C and MIS 111 required), Math 120R, Math 163, Math 263, SBS 200, ISTA 116, and other courses.
 Math 119A  for Psychological Sciences, Physio, EEB, Biology, and MCB majors only, same placement as Math 120R. Is not a prerequisite to Math 129. Math 119A is a prerequisite to courses like CHEM 141/151, MCB 181L/R, PHYS 102, Math 163, Math 263, SBS 200, ISTA 116, and other courses.
 PSY 230 is now a gstrand math course.
 Please direct students to placement@math.arizona.edu for transfer, test score, placement testing, registration, or other placement related questions. A team of staff help respond to these inquiries.
 Incoming students should be directed to their Next Steps Center. There are special math links there that are specific to the incoming student groups.
 A grade of C or higher in Math 112 is required for entry into Math 113 or 116 (also requires MIS 111).
 New course, Math 106, to replace Math 105 for students in the College of Education.
 Math 107 info sheet.
 Can replace Math 109C/112 for the following majors: Care, Health, and Society, Communication (as prerequisite to SBS 200), Criminal Justice, Family Studies and Human Development, Information Science and Arts, Political Science, Psychology BA (not BS), Public Management and POlicy, Regional Development, Sociology, or majors that allow Math 105 (except some in the College of Education, consult advisor.)
 Is a prerequisite to SBS 200 and ISTA 116 (note that stats courses are NOT prerequisite to lab sciences courses).
 Is NOT a prerequisite to Math 112 or lab science courses like MCB 181L/R, PHYS 102, CHEM 141/151.
 We have several math requirement designators attached to transfer math courses that do not have a UA equivalent, but can satisfy a requirement.
 RD G105 is attached to a course that will satisfy UA Math 105
 RD M116 is usually attached to a course that transfers as Math 113 (not dual enrollment) and means the course will satisfy UA Math 116.
 RD M112 is attached to a course that will satisfy Math 112 requirement, but is not a prerequisite to other math or science courses.
 RD GSTA is attached to a low level statistics course that seems to have similar content to courses like UA Math 163, Psyc 230, SBS 200, but does not have a college algebra (Math 112) or higher level prerequisite. The course can satisfy the Gstrand math requirement (Math 105), or a major statistics requirement (Math 163, Psyc 230, SBS 200), but NOT BOTH. GSTA courses cannot satisfy a Mstrand foundation math (Math 112) requirement.
 RD BSTA is just like GSTA but can also satisfy BNAD 276.
