MATH PLACEMENT TEST
(Updated 5/30/2013)

The Mathematics Placement Test at USCL is now administered online.

This test must be completed prior to your chosen Orientation date to ensure the completion of your course registration. The test will take ninety minutes. It must be completed on an individual basis. Calculators are not allowed. We recommend that all students take the practice test prior to the actual test.  Only accepted students are eligible to take the Math Placement Test.

First, go to https://my.sc.edu/vipid  to set your VIP ID Password for Self Service Carolina (SSC), the University's system for secure, personal access to University data.  You received your VIP ID and USC ID needed to set your VIP ID Password in your acceptance letter.

If you wish to see a video tutorial, click the link: http://vimeo.com/62069556.  Questions regarding your University of South Carolina VIP ID and Password should be directed to the USC Lancaster Admissions Office at (803) 313-7073.

Second, go to https://my.sc.edu and Select the “Set Your USC Network Username/Email Password” link.  Enter your VIP ID and Password (see step one to complete that process).  Your USC Network Username will be displayed.  You will need to set an additional password.  USC Lancaster encourages you to set your VIP ID Password and your USC Network Username/Email Password the same.

If you wish to see a video tutorial, click the link: http://vimeo.com/62168036  Questions regarding your University of South Carolina username and password should be directed to the USC helpdesk in Columbia at (803) 777-1800.

Third, to determine which test to take for your major, go to the "List of Majors and Math Placement Tests" at https://assess.math.sc.edu/public/MPTbyMajor.pdf. The exam you take depends on the mathematics requirements for your major.

Fourth, access the test at https://assess.math.sc.edu.

Once you have completed the test, you will be instructed to print out a score sheet. *Bring this with you to your chosen Orientation session.* Remember that this test is not a reflection of your ability; it is simply used to place you into the appropriate mathematics course at USCL.

Should you have any questions concerning the test, contact Dr. Shemsi Alhaddad (alhaddad(at)mailbox.sc.edu) at USC Lancaster.
