Math Placement | Mount St. Joseph University
Stack of books.

During Priority Registration Day, you'll take the COMPASS Math Placement Test to ensure you begin your first year at the appropriate math level.

Your advisor will review your Math Placement score before meeting with you during Priority Registration Day. The test takes between 30 and 60 minutes.

We strongly recommend that you review for the assessment; students who review algebra and trig concepts prior to taking the assessment often achieve higher scores. The following links are to websites that might be helpful to look at for algebra and trig review prior to taking your placement assessment: S.O.S Mathematics or Purplemath.

Once you're finished, head over to the Writing Assessment page.
