Term Program

Placement in Mathematics Courses

Many students enrolling at Weber State are under-prepared for college level mathematics. All students requiring developmental course work must enroll in and not withdraw from their initial developmental course(s) within the first two semesters. Upon enrolling in a developmental course, these students are then required to make progress (defined as the minimum course grade of C) each subsequent semester (excluding summer) until all relevant minimum developmental requirements (including MATH 1010  if applicable) have been met for the students’ declared degree program of study (A.A.S., A.S., A.A., or bachelor’s degree). Otherwise, a hold will be placed on their registration which can be removed only by the Student Success Center. Students who are out of compliance with WSU’s Assessment & Placement Policy three times or more will be allowed to register only for their required developmental courses until they have been successfully completed with a grade of C or better (see the Policy and Procedures Manual, PPM 6-02.III.D.1. Students are placed into developmental math courses using ACCUPLACER scores.

Students are placed into higher-level mathematics courses using either ACCUPLACER, ACT, or COMPASS scores. Note that the cut scores given below may be subject to change. (For the most recent cut scores, see the WSU Assessment and Placement Standards.
