Credit Exams for Undergraduates

The Department of Mathematics provides several credit exams that newly-admitted and currently-enrolled students may take to obtain credit in certain mathematics courses. These exams (and their course equivalents at Purdue) include:

Algebra, Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus

Mathematics for Elementary School Teachers

Science Calculus

Technical Calculus

Please note that the different schools at Purdue University have different math requirements. Check with your academic counselor about how these credits may be used in your particular major.

Tests for obtaining credit are publicly scheduled for mid-June through mid-July, just before the beginning of the fall semester, and in the middle of each semester. Individual testing may be arranged by contacting your Academic Advisor. Inquiries may also be addressed to the Mathematics Department's Academic Services Office in room 242 of the Mathematical Sciences Building, (765)-494-1991.
