Math Placement

All students must meet the prerequisite for any MATH course that they take at USC. For some courses this prerequisite is met after taking the Math Assessment of Prerequisites (MAP). This assessment allows students to gauge how their math skills translate into each relevant course.

The Math Assessment of Prerequisites is available now to take for the Spring 2022 registration. The assessment will be available to take until January 8, 2023, 11:59pm, before the Spring semester starts. The assessment will resume with in person testing for current USC-Columbia students in February and March, 2023. Please check back for testing dates and registration information for the in person sessions which will be announced soon.
