This Guide will help you determine, interpret, and improve your Math Placement tier, and show you how to use your ALEKS PPL Learning Module to revitalize and expand your mathematical knowledge.

Math Placement is a process! Assessments are essential components of that process, but enhancing your math skills through targeted study and learning about UCSC math courses are equally important steps on your path to success.

Math Placement Tiers

For enrollment purposes, your ALEKS assessment scores are converted to UCSC Math Placement tiers, which are transferred into your UCSC portal within three business days after completion of your placement assessment. Your highest tier determines the UCSC math courses you're eligible to enroll in.
