Interpreting the College-Level Mathematics Score
Score of 95 or above:
A student scoring in this range will be automatically placed into *Calculus I during the first semester at MMA.*
*Note: Any student wishing to enroll in the Energy Systems Engineering major must enroll in Calculus I in the first semester
Score below 95:
All students scoring less than 95 will be placed in Algebra/Trigonometry. The following requirements apply to students enrolled in this course:
The course must be passed and is a prerequisite for participation in sea term.
The course must be passed by the end of a student’s second semester or the student will not be permitted to enroll for a third semester.
Recommendations and Requirements
Scores between 40 and 94:
Many students in this score range still find Algebra/Trigonometry challenging and benefit from remedial work and tutoring. By no means does such a score guarantee success in the course. All students are urged to seek out those resources available at MMA to support students enrolled in Algebra/Trigonometry. These resources include supplemental computerized mathematics instruction (ALEKS) and no-cost tutoring at the Academy’s Academic Resource Center.
Scores below 40:
With a score of less than 40, a student is considered a student who requires mathematics remediation. Historical data show that students scoring less than 40 have a significantly reduced chance of performing to standards in the Algebra/ Trigonometry course. The student will be limited to 12 course credits for the first semester. Although the student will be placed in Algebra/Trigonometry, the student will find the course very challenging and will struggle to learn new concepts and skills without the benefit of having mastered those skills expected of entering college students. The student must take full advantage of the additional resources the Academy offers to help him or her succeed. Recommended and required resources are outlined below:
Optional Resources: Prior to attending MMA, the student is strongly advised to do one or more of the following in order to receive a normal 15-credit fall semester course load:
1. Enroll in and successfully complete the ALEKS "Prep for College Algebra With Trigonometry/MMA" course as outlined at the following link: ALEKS Option
2. Complete an Intermediate Algebra course at MMA during the summer and earn no lower than a “C” grade.
3. Complete a course in Intermediate Algebra at another accredited institution of higher education, earning no lower than a "B" grade. The student must request that a transcript showing the course and grade be sent by the institution to the MMA Registrar’s Office.
Mandatory requirement: In fall semester, the student will also be required to undertake six (6) hours of mandatory tutoring per week offered at no charge by the Academy through its Academic Resource Center.
