Math Placement for Continuing Students

Continuing students, please follow the instructions below to set up an account or renew access.

Instructions for taking the Assessment

  1. Set up or renew your account with ALEKS.
    1. If you have never used ALEKS before, start at this link.
    2. If you already have an ALEKS account, but your access is expired, you will need to sign up for a “new class”. To do this, just log into ALEKS using your ALEKS username and password, then select:
  2. Enter the Course Code LJLHH-VDMGL when prompted. This code gives you one year of access and includes FIVE exam attempts as well as 6 months in an adaptive online learning module.
  3. Take a placement test and/or review for the next one.
    1. If you are setting up or renewing an account, use your first exam as a practice test! While you may use your first score to place into classes, many students see significant improvements on further retakes.
    2. If you have already taken an ALEKS test, use the learning module to review and prepare. If you have already taken precalculus (in high school) you should choose the Prep for Calculus module, otherwise you should choose the Prep for Precalculus Module. Both modules include all of the content from the Prep for College Algebra module.
  4. Your score is not automatically recorded. Once you finish the exam, email Colin Ehr at to request that your score gets recorded.
