Regardless of previous college level math credit, all first-year transfer students must take the Math Placement (ALEKS) before attending new student orientation (START). Use the ALEKS’ learning modules to refresh your math skills as you prepare the transition into OSU. Your ALEKS score, along with prior college credit transcripts and any AP/IB scores, will be used by your advisor during your advising session to aid in selecting proper courses for your first term at OSU. If you do not complete the test before your START session, your class registration time at new student orientation will be delayed. Transfer students must get prior permission from their major advisor to skip the ALEKS assessment for math.
