All new students must take the Math Placement Exam by June 1st. The link to the exam is available from the student portal.

The Math Placement Exam must be taken, regardless of Calculus AP exam score or anticipated exam score. Click here to see the AP Exam course equivalents for those entering UD in the fall of 2014.

Students who anticipate or received a 5 on AP Calc AB or AP Calc BC should take the Honors Calculus Placement Exam. This will allow students to be considered for advanced Honors Calculus courses in the fall. This is an option for all majors and University Studies students.

FAQs

I have or think I will have AP credit for Calculus. Should I still take the Math Placement Exam?

Yes! If you received a 5 on the AP Calc AB exam, you will receive credit for UD's Math 241. If you receive a 5 on AP Calc BC, you will receive credit for UD's Math 241 and Math 242. You still must take the Math Placement Exam and you should take the Honors Calculus Placement Exam to see if you are eligible to take the next level of Calculus in an honors section.

When will I find out my Calculus Placement Test score?

Is there an Honors section of Math 221 or Math 241?
