* The following students do NOT have to take the MPE:

  1. New incoming students who already have an MPE score, that is based on an ACT/SAT test score. You may be able to retake if you want to try for a higher score to meet a pre-requisite. 
  2. Students who have, at the time of their first enrollment at Andrews University, transferred credit from an accredited college in a college algebra, precalculus, precalculus algebra, trigonometry or any calculus course. All these courses, when evaluated and accepted by the University, will satisfy the General Education Mathematics requirement.
  3. Students who have taken AP Calculus and have passed the AB test with a score of at least 3 or have passed the BC test with a score of at least 4.
  4. Students transferring from a four-year college into Physical Therapy or Medical Laboratory Sciences and are classified as seniors in their first year at Andrews are deemed to have met the mathematics requirement of the college or university from which they are transferring. The Andrews mathematics requirement is waived, and these students do not have to take the MPE.
  5. Students enrolled in the Intensive English Language Program are not required to take the MPE until the first semester of enrollment in regular college level courses.

Courses named Elementary Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, College Mathematics or Beginning Algebra will generally not be sufficient to meet the General Education requirement, although taking them can help you score well in the MPE.
