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
as described in the tables below. Initial mathematics placements **expire after one year.** It is therefore very important that **all freshmen** who have not completed their mathematics requirement **take a mathematics course within their first two semesters at UNT.**

Students have an opportunity to improve their placement level by taking the Mathematics Placement Test. In particular, all students planning to major in **science, engineering, **or** mathematics,** or planning on obtaining a Bachelor of Science in **economics**, as well as all students whose degree plan requires **Math 1710 (Calculus I) **should take the Math Placement Test prior to orientation.

For advice on which mathematics course to take, consult your advisor or this page.

The College Board changed the scoring of the SAT in March of 2016. If you took the SAT prior to March 2016, you should look up your score below under the "Old SAT" column. If you took the SAT in March 2016 or later, use the "New SAT" column.
