For many majors (science, technology and math), it’s strongly recommended that you take math placement before registering for classes. All Engineering, Biology, Microbiology & Immunology, Biochemistry, Chemistry and Computer Science majors are required to take the ALEKS Math Placement to be placed into calculus for their first semester at UTSA.
