  • When can I take the Math Placement Exam 4 (MPE4)?
    The College of Engineering requires new engineering students to take the online proctored exam before your New Student Conference (NSC). Your test scores will be reported to you and your academic advisor.
  • Will taking MATH 150 delay my graduation? 
    Please remember that proper placement in your first math course is paramount to your success and degree completion in engineering. MATH 150 represents one extra course, which could extend time to graduation by one or two semesters. However, it is possible to take summer session courses at Texas A&M to get back on track for timely degree completion. If you do not take the proper math course and fail, graduation could be delayed even more.
  • If I start my math sequence at Texas A&M in MATH 150, how do I get back on track?
    It is possible to take summer session courses at Texas A&M to get back on track for timely degree completion. Also, please remember that you have alternate options to demonstrate readiness for MATH 151 (Engineering Mathematics I) before you begin your first semester at Texas A&M.
  • Math is my best subject in high school, and I even took an AP calculus course. Why am I required to first take a pre-calculus course if I score less than a 22 on the Math Placement Exam 4? 
    The MPE4 is the best single indicator of student performance in the math courses and our goal is to set students up for success in the math courses. If a student scores less than 22 on the exam, the student is required to begin in MATH 150.
  • If I take MATH 150 the first semester, will I still be able to apply for entry to a major during my second semester? 
    Students who begin their math sequence in MATH 150 are expected to meet entry to a major (ETAM) coursework requirements after their third semester -- upon completion of MATH 152, PHYS 206 and ENGR 216/PHYS 216. Therefore, students enrolled in MATH 150 will apply for entry to a major during the third semester. For more information, visit the Entry to a Major page.
  • If I score below a 22 on the Math Placement Exam 4, can I retake it?
    Yes, you can retake the MPE4. Proctored sessions will be offered in July and August. More information on test dates at each campus will be provided to impacted students after their New Student Conference.
  • Is there another way I can demonstrate readiness for MATH 151 (Engineering Mathematics I) without retaking the Math Placement Exam 4?
    Yes, you can enroll in your local community college this summer and earn college credit (with a letter grade of A or B) for a course equivalent to Texas A&M’s MATH 150 (Functions, Trigonometry and Linear Systems). Equivalent classes for most institutions can be found in the Transfer Course Equivalency Guide.
  • Are the results of the Math Placement Exam 4 binding? 
    Yes. However, you do have alternate options to demonstrate readiness for MATH 151 (Engineering Mathematics I).
  • I already have AP/IB credit (or dual credit) for Calculus I. Can I be exempt from this test? 
    No, all incoming students are required to take the MPE4. Credit for Calculus I does not necessarily ensure adequate preparation for engineering calculus.
