The FINAL Basic Math (R1) Exemption Test of the semester is being offered:
Monday, December 6th
6:30 p.m.
Marcus 131

Passing this test exempts you from the Basic Math (R1) Gen Ed requirement.
OK - but should I take it?

Here's what you should consider:
  • Do any of your current or intended academic majors/minors/certificates require math-based courses? If so, the R1 Exemption Test may not be the best option for you. The test is only used to satisfy your Gen Ed requirement--it does NOT prepare you for further math-based courses.
  • If you do NOT intend to pursue an academic path that requires math-based courses, the R1 Exemption Test is a great way to get your Basic Math Gen Ed out of the way! You can learn more about what to expect on the test from the Math Department's website and you can take the test multiple times if need be, without penalty, to pass.
As always, if you have any questions (like if you're not sure what majors/minors/certificates you might consider pursing or whether what you have already declared requires math-based courses) talk with an advisor!
