Adult Degree Completion Program

Placement assessment ensures placement in classes providing you with the best foundation for success at Dominican. You may not be required to take every assessment described here.
What is the Math placement assessment like?

This untimed assessment begins at a medium level of difficulty with Elementary Algebra, then adapts as questions become too hard or too easy for you.

You do not need to take the placement assessment in math if either of the following applies to you:

  • If you have already taken college algebra, statistics, pre-calculus, trigonometry, or calculus and passed with a grade of ‘C’ or higher, you have met your General Education requirement in Mathematical Thinking and Quantitative Reasoning. Unless your major requires further math, you will not need to take another math course at Dominican.
  • If you intend to major in Leadership and Management or Psychology and have already passed a college course in intermediate algebra with a grade of ‘C’ or higher, you may enroll directly in statistics.

The ADC advisor will inform you if a math placement test is required upon evaluation of your transcripts.
