International Students

International students who have never taken a college level mathematics course in the U.S. and do not have an ACT or SAT mathematics score must first take the ACT Residual Exam. This exam is administered through the Office of International Affairs and the Counseling and Testing Office.  Depending on the results from the ACT Residual, international students will take the International Placement and Credit exam through the Math Department.
