Placement exams in mathematics are required of all K-State undergraduates to assess which courses are most suited to their abilities. For additional information, please visit Choosing the correct math course.
Placement exams may also be required by specific graduate programs to plan a suitable program of study and determine if remedial work is needed through additional coursework or independent study. See your department's description in the current graduate catalog or contact the graduate program director for resources on placement exam preparation.
In addition to the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) or other discipline-specific entrance exams, you may be asked by a graduate program to take qualifying exams, before or during your program of study. These exams, in addition to your performance through coursework, help determine whether you qualify for the graduate degree.
Visit with your graduate advisor for guidance on preparation materials.
