2. The College Algebra departmental placement test:

    • Offered online through Main Campus Testing Services.
    • This is available to students at no cost.
    • There is no remediation and no re-testing available with the departmental placement test. As such, the math department strongly prefers students to use the ALEKS option for better placement options and higher success rates in math courses.
