UW-Whitewater Mathematics Requirements

Your actual mathematics placement at UW-Whitewater will be based on a placement test which is very similar to the test given in the Junior Testing program and on your ACT or SAT mathematics score. Your score on the actual placement test could be higher if you study mathematics during your senior year and perhaps lower if you do not. The purpose of the Junior Test is to give you an indication of where you are now so you can plan your senior year mathematics program.
