*Math Placement Tests:  All students requiring a Math placement test are strongly advised to take the on-line ALEKS placement to insure appropriate Math enrollment. ALEKS provides up to six months of online tutorials to improve your knowledge and two opportunities to retake the test to improve your placement. Students can complete the tutorials and test from any computer in any location. If the end result is a higher math placement, ALEKS is well worth the nominal cost. New students are encouraged to plan ahead and allow adequate time to complete the ALEKS process in order to have final ALEKS test scores prior to their registered Rocket Launch Orientation dates.
