Determine If You Need to Take a Math Placement Test

Most students attending USCA for the first time must complete a math placement test.  USCA's Math Department has provided helpful information to determine if you require the test:

Math Placement Tests are found in Blackboard. You should see them as soon as you log into Blackboard. If not, follow these instructions:

  1. Log into Blackboard at:
  2. If you are asked to complete a Blackboard profile go ahead and do so, or just click the "Do it later" link to continue into Blackboard.
  3. Once you are into Blackboard you'll see several modules. Find the "My Organizations" module on the right-side of the screen. You're looking for the "USC Aiken Math Placement Test" link highlighted in yellow in this example.
