For many majors (science, technology and math), it’s strongly recommended you take a math and/or chemistry placement exam before registering for classes; engineering majors are required to take the math placement exam to be placed into calculus. Taking a placement exam could allow you to test into a higher prerequisite course for your first semester, which could help you graduate sooner. Placement exams are offered through UTSA Testing Services.
