WMPT Placement Chart

Students are typically placed in appropriate mathematics courses depending on (1) their scores on the Wisconsin Mathematics Placement Test (WMPT), and (2) when they took the WMPT.  Due to complications with new students testing for Fall 2020 term and COVID-19, the WMPT will be waived and students will be placed via their ACT "Math" or SAT "Maths" score.  Students should consult the chart that matches their testing date, as follows.

Chart 1A: For students who tested March 2017 and thereafter, Incoming Fall 2020 students.
Chart 1: For students who tested March 2017 and thereafter.
