Math Proficiency Survey

The Department of Mathematics administers an online Math Proficiency Survey to each incoming class. The purpose of the survey is to determine the general level of basic mathematical skills of the students enrolling in the University of Denver. In addition to providing the University with information regarding the skills of the general student population, the University will use the information to offer students, particularly those wishing to major in business, advice regarding the mathematics course in which they might best enroll.

There is no pass or fail and this is not a placement test. The results of the test will not automatically place students into any particular class. It will merely provide a basis for recommending a class.

Students who will be transferring in course or AP credits for Calculus I-equivalent or higher mathematics coursework do not need to take the survey, however, their participation is appreciated.

The Fall 2014 Math Proficiency Survey can be accessed here.
