Check eligibility for ALEKS Math Placement test

We do not recommend waiting for your advising appointment to take the test. More information about ALEKS can be found at

You are advised to take the math placement test if...

  • You have not taken the ACT or SAT and would like to take a higher math than MATH 1000; or

  • You do not have AP/IB, dual enrollment, or transfer credit for math and would like to take a higher math than MATH 1000; or

  • You have an ACT or SAT math subsection score but would like to try to place into a higher math than your standardized test math score permits. See placement guidelines at

Consider the Foreign Language Placement Test

The Department of World Languages, Literatures and Cultures required all entering students who have prior knowledge of Spanish, French, or German and plan to continue their language studies in these language areas at Auburn University to take a placement test to ensure correct placement in college-level language courses. If you intend to enroll in a foreign language, you can find more information regarding the foreign language placement test.
