Math Placement at UND
We are excited you are attending UND! We want to give you some information regarding math placement. Placement into a math course is based on your ACT or SAT score. These actions are in accordance with the North Dakota University System (NDUS) Policy 402.1.2 – Admission Policies – Student Placement into College Courses. Placement is as follows:
ACT Math sub-scores 0-20 – may enroll in Math 102
ACT Math sub-scores 21-25 – may enroll in Math 103, 105, or 107
ACT Math sub-scores 26-36 – may enroll in Math 103, 105, 107, 146, or 208*
ACT Math sub-score 27 – may enroll in Math 112 and Math 165
ACT Math sub-scores 28-36 – may enroll in Math 103, 105, 107, 146, 165 or 208*
*Math 208 is not recommended for first semester freshmen.
A portion of Policy 402.1.2 allows for the use of SAT for placement purposes into Math 103.
The current SAT scores and placement into Math 103 are as follows:
SAT Critical (Reading+Math) score of 0-989 – may enroll in Math 102
SAT Critical (Reading+Math) score of 990 or higher – may enroll in Math 103
If you have AP, IB, transfer, or dual credit, you may be placed into the appropriate math course based on the transferability of the course(s) you have taken. Remember to have a copy of your official transcript sent to UND prior to your orientation session date.
The COMPASS exam score will be used to place students if it indicates a higher level than that indicated by ACT/SAT scores. Placement is as follows:
COMPASS Algebra Exam score 0-48 – may enroll in Math 102
COMPASS Algebra Exam score 49-100 - may enroll in Math 103, 105 or 107
COMPASS College Algebra Exam score 46 or higher – may enroll in Math 103, 105, 107, 146, or 208
COMPASS Trigonometry Exam 43-45 – may enroll in Math 112 and Math 165
COMPASS Trigonometry Exam 46 or higher – may enroll in Math 103, 105, 107, 146, 165 or 208
Taking the COMPASS exam
If you are intending to take the COMPASS exam, it's recommended that you take it prior to your Orientation date. Options for taking the exam include:
- Take COMPASS exam at UND prior to the Orientation program. Contact UND Testing Services at 701-777-4157 to schedule an exam.
- Take COMPASS exam at a remote location as described below.
Please Note: You will need to request remote access from UND at least 48 hours prior to scheduling the exam at your remote location. Your remote access is valid for 45 days. If you do not take the exam within 45 days you will be required to contact UND to request permission again.
1) Contact the UND Testing Services office at 701-777-4157 and tell them that you would like to register to take a REMOTE COMPASS exam. To find remote locations, log on to the following website www.act.org/compass/sites . Prior to calling the UND Testing Services office, verify that the location at which you wish to take the COMPASS exam is a remote test provider.
2) UND will then register you to take our placement test at the site you indicate. (Note: This does not schedule you to take the exam.) You must schedule an appt. with the Testing Center of your choice. Registering for the test does not give your place of testing.
3) This registration can usually be competed in only a few minutes and over the phone. This is subject to change due to staff availability.
4) Once this process is finished you will get an email from ACT with a registration number – PRINT AND SAVE THIS EMAIL. You will use this registration number when you take the remote exam.
5) If you do not get a confirmation from ACT you need to contact UND again – the remote testing site cannot give you our exam without your registration number. (This process ensures that you will be able to automatically forward your scores to UND as soon as you finish with the exam.)
6) You will then receive, usually within 48 hours, another email that is from your remote site. This email confirms they have received your registration information and typically includes instructions for your testing site, hours of operations, and that you can schedule an exam time with them.
7) Contact your testing site to schedule your exam.
