Placement Posting Dates

You'll see your placement assessment score in ALEKS as soon as you complete your assessment, but your updated math placement tier won't appear in your UCSC portal until the next posting date. Your best placement tier, as shown in your UCSC portal, determines your math enrollment eligibility.

With some exceptions, placement assessment scores are posted weekly: scores for assessments completed by Monday night will be posted to your UCSC portal by the end of the next business day (Tuesday). There is an eight hour grace period: assessments completed before 8:00 AM on Tuesday morning will be posted that day.

You can reassess in ALEKS PPL at any time, provided that you've waited at least two days and worked for at least five hours in your ALEKS Learning Module, but your score won't appear in your UCSC portal until the next posting date.

If you complete more than one placement assessment between posting dates, only your best score from that period will be converted to a placement tier and posted.
