Math Placement

Math Placement at Butler

All Students who are admitted to Butler must have a math placement test score in order to enroll in any Butler math course. (Butler accepts ACT, ACCUPLACER. Other placement options for out-of-state.)  

Step 1 - Assessment

If your ACT scores are a 21 or above you do not need placement testing and can proceed to STEP 3.  

If you do not have a math placement score, you scored below a 21 or your scores are more than three years old, you will be required to take the ACCUPLACER test. Schedule a Testing appointment. Testing hours vary depending on campus location.

Step 2 - My Math Plan

Following ACCUPLACER, if you do not test directly into college algebra you will take a My Math Plan assessment that places you in the math module that is right for you. Schedule a Testing appointment. Testing hours vary depending on campus location. 

Optional – This assessment is optional if you test into college algebra.

Step 3 - Working With an Advisor

All students will work with their advisor to enroll them in the correct math course or math module sequence.

To make an appointment with an advisor, you can schedule online or call/email one of our Advising staff members.
