You are exempt from the Math Placement Exam ONLY under the following circumstances**:
Students with intended business majors: you must have IU Bloomington credit for both Math-M118 and Math-M119 OR both Math M-118 and Math-M211 to be exempt for the online Math Placement Exam.
All other students: you must have IU Bloomington credit for Math-M118 and Math-M119 OR Math-M211 to be exempt from the online Math Placement Exam.
If your transfer credits have not given you credit for these IU Bloomington course(s), you must plan to take the Math Placement Exam prior to New Student Orientation.
**If you plan to enroll in CHEM-C 117, CHEM-S 117, MATH-T 101, or EDUC-N 101, you must plan to take the Math Placement Exam, regardless of your intended area of study.
You are required to take the online math placement exam (ALEKS) only once, but you can choose to take it up to three times, and you will have the opportunity to improve your score by taking the online tutorials that are built into the ALEKS system. These are mandatory for retesting for IU Bloomington and could take several hours to complete.
You will complete your test on the secure ALEKS testing site, which is not part of the IU web domain. When you click on the login button below, you may see an IU Login screen. Just enter your IU username and passphrase. If you don't see the IU Login screen, don't worry—it just means you have already authenticated.
You must complete the exam in one sitting without breaks and should not log in until you are ready to test without interruptions. Once you log in, you must begin testing and cannot log out and resume the exam later.
