Math Assessment 

To complete your enrollment at Husson University for the upcoming semester, you'll need to take the Math Assessment. This online test is designed to assess your math skills so that we can place you in a math course where you can be successful and learn useful new skills. It's not an exam you need to study for or one that you can “fail.”

A lower score will simply place you a lower-level course where your confidence and skills can grow. Consequently, you may need to take additional math courses until you attain the minimum outcome for your major. A higher score will place you in a higher-level course where you will master new skills that will make other courses easier for you.

When do I need to take it?
Please complete the Math Assessment as soon as you are able. You are issued a voucher via email (to your Husson email address) that has an expiration date on it. If you are unable to complete the test by that date, a new voucher will be emailed to your Husson email address.

How long will it take?
This assessment on average takes students about 40 minutes, but there is no time limit. The initial test is 20 questions, and depending on how you do on the first 20 questions, you may be taken to a second set of 20 questions. These are to further assess your math level and make sure you are placed into the correct class.

Do I really need to take the test?
Yes, all newly accepted students need to take the Math Assessment unless they are transferring college credit equivalent to one of the following courses:

  • MS141 Contemporary College Algebra
  • MS180 Pre-Calculus with Trigonometry
  • MS181 Calculus with Applications
  • MS182 Calculus I
