Math Placement

STEM majors with an entry level math placement are especially encouraged to apply to Early Start.  Algebra (MATH 1100) is offered for those who require or prefer a refresher before moving on to more advanced levels of math.

How is my math placement determined?

Upon admission, incoming UNT freshmen are initially given a mathematics placement level based on a combination of their high school class rank and SAT or ACT math scores.  If this placement is level one, or entry level,  you are especially invited to apply to Early Start. Note that should you successfully challenge this placement and become eligible to enroll in a more advanced math course (i.e. precalculus or calculus), you will need to enroll in Biology for Science Majors (BIOL 1710) or you will no longer be eligible for Early Start. Visit the UNT Math Department's website for more information about math placement.  If you intend to challenge your math placement, please speak with an Early Start staff member before applying to the program.
