Taking the Math Placement Test

Retaking the Math Placement Test

Students must make an appointment to retake the Math Placement exam. Math Placement is no longer offered on a walk in basis.

Registering for the Test
Students must register online for a testing appointment.

To view the available test dates and time via the exam registration system students must:

  • Pick a Math Placement exam under Choose an exam type. As we may have Math Placement exams proctored at different locations, there may be multiple Math Placement exams listed. For example Math Placement @ 75 Piedmont is given at the Counseling and Testing Center’s office while Math Placement @ Urban Life MILE will be in the MILE lab in the Urban Life building. The address of the registration will be on the confirmation email.
  • Pick Math Placement under Choose an exam.
  • Use the Choose a Date and Choose a Time sections to see all of the open dates and times currently available at Atlanta Campus.

Dates and times are added throughout the year to accommodate students’ schedules. After completing the above steps, students may complete a registration for any open date and time by:

  • Providing the student’s name and email.
  • Reading and acknowledging the guidelines.
  • Providing a Phone number and Georgia State University Panther ID Number.

Students should bring the following items on the test date:

  • Non-expired photo ID
  • Panther ID number
  • If retaking the test: There is a %50 retest fee. This can be demonstrated via a registration confirmation showing the retest was paid at the time or registration or receipt of payment via our online fee portal if the fee was not assessed during registration for the appointment. Note: Testing fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. If using the online Testing Fee Portal, please read the information and then click the “Testing Fees” box to enter the portal. You will see the current fees displayed at the top of this second page. Scroll down and click “Add to Cart”.
