Mathematics Distance Courses

Andrews University manages the registration and provides the instruction and support for students taking Consortium classes.


Guest and degree students taking an Andrews University math course must meet prerequisites.  There are several ways to do so:
  1. Submit proof of qualifying SAT or ACT math scores during admission or email to sderegister@andrews.edu
  2. Submit a transcript with a grade of C or higher in a college math class equivalent to any listed as meeting the prerequisite. (See FAQs for more options.) Upload the transcript with your application or email it to sderegister@andrews.edu.  
  3. Take the Math Placement Exam, using the recommended ALEKS PPL that includes self-assessments and review at the level you need for up to six months.

Your exam score will be visible in the assessment section of your iVue webpage within two business days of taking the MPE and providing your Andrews ID.  If the recorded score is within the expected range for your chosen math course, you can enroll as soon as the score is entered. Email the Math Department  with any questions about meeting prerequisites.
