Mathematics Placement Test
Placement into Mathematics courses will be determined by the student's Math ACT or Math SAT scores. Alternatively, students may take the Belmont Math placement exam, which is available online to all incoming firstyear and transfer students during Towering Traditions. Math faculty members will be available to advise students about their Math courses during Towering Traditions, as well.
Questions about which courses taken at other colleges and universities may be substituted for Math requirements at Belmont should be directed to the chairperson of the Department of Mathematics/Computer Science or the associate dean of the School of Sciences.
