UC San Diego assists firstyear students to complete their math placement in spring so that they may be eligible to enroll in math coursework at UCSD during the summer and in the fall. Math placement is a critical component to eligibility for summer and fall enrollment.
The timeline below shows the actions of early placement supported by the Math Testing and Placement Team.
Upon admittance to UC San Diego, the MTP Team evaluates math placement for all students. Students who have not met enrollment requirements will take a Math Diagnostic Assessment (MDA). The diagnostic assessment is taken online and is unproctored and timed and must be completed in one sitting.
MDA results are regularly evaluated to create individualize placement plans that are sent to students by the MTP Team. This process is shown in the flowchart below.
