Math STEP Workshop

If you have the STEP Workshop Hold on your student account, you are required to complete a math refresher workshop before coming in for your Math Placement appointment. You will not be able to take math placement until after the workshop is completed. The STEP Workshop is available for all students to complete in prepraration for the Placement test, but is only required if there is a STEP Hold on the student's account. 

The STEP Workshop is available to be completed online. If you wish to complete the STEP Workshop in person, please contact Kristie Gilmore at (219) 981-5691 or [[krlgilmo]].

1.  Refresh Your Math Skills

Before taking the Math Placement test, it is highly recommended that students spend time refreshing their skills using the practice tests provided by the IU Northwest Math Department or taking advantage of Mathematics Placement Coaching. Note that you cannot use a calculator on the Placement tests. It is recommended that you do not use a calculator to practice or during coaching sessions. You can also view the general education math requirement for your selected major here. You can view the practice tests or schedule free placement coaching with our experienced tutors:

2. Schedule Your Placement Appointment

In order for students to schedule an appointment, they must have their University ID Number. This can be found on the Certificate of Admission or through One.IU.

There are many dates and times open for students to schedule their appointment using our online calendar.

If you have a documented academic accommodation, please contact the Placement Testing office to schedule an individual appointment in person.

If you are having trouble scheduling your appointment or prefer to not use the online calendar, please contact the Placement Testing Office at (219) 980-6830 or [[testingn]].
