A University in Motion. Apply now!

Get confident. Be ready!

AUM's Math Placement Program could save you valuable time and tuition dollars!

Math Placement is all about you.  It’s a no judgement zone that allows you to work on areas where you are less confident and get prepared for the upcoming semester.

Not only is the program free, it could save you from taking up to two math classes.  That means you could save up to $2,700 in tuition and two semesters of math.

It’s on your time, on your computer, and totally in your control!

AUM Math Boot Camp (aka MATH placement program) is a non-credit, web-based math placement preparation program for undergraduate Warhawk students to improve their placement in their first AUM math course or placement into an advanced mathematics course. We encourage new incoming Warhawks to complete the boot camp before their scheduled Student Orientation. As a boot camp participant, we want to ensure you soar at AUM through the successful completion of your math courses!

Best of all, it’s free!

Potential Benefits

What are the potential benefits of taking the Math Boot Camp?

Save Money

Taking fewer courses costs less money

Students can save roughly $1372 if they can test out of just 1 math course.

Students can save roughly $2744 if they test out of 2 math courses (when compared to taking MATH 0703 and MATH 0803).

Save Time

The fewer classes that students must take, the more time they have for other interests

Since each of the above courses requires 5 hours of class time each week, placing out of just 1 math course will free up 90+ hours plus study and transit time over the course of a semester.
The fewer classes students take, the sooner they may graduate!

No Bottlenecking

Math pre-requisites can delay graduation dates

Several programs require math pre-requisites (e.g. Pre-calculus) to enter higher-level courses. Students who can complete these math pre-requisites early in their program will be able to take the courses they need when they need them.

Who is eligible to take a Math Boot Camp?

  • Students who have not yet participated in the program.
  • Students whose ALEKS accounts are still valid and have remaining attempts to take the placement test.

Note: Students are allotted four attempts to take a proctored placement test, and they have one year from when they register for an ALEKS PPL account to use those attempts.


Register for Math Boot Camp Now

You will need the following items to register:

  • AUM User ID and Password
  • Computer with web browser (Google Chrome is recommended)

AUM’s Math Boot Camp is online and self-paced. Students will work through online math modules and have access to an instructor who will answer any questions they may have about the course or the material. Additionally, students will have access to AUM’s free tutoring centers—the Instructional Support Lab (244-3265) and the Learning Center (244-3470)—if they need additional support.

To register:

  • Click the following link: ALEKS PROGRAM LINK
  • After the MyAUM screen appears, log in using your AUM user ID and password.
  • Review and Accept Terms of Use (this only appears with first login).
  • Take a short survey (only for the first time) and follow the prompt to complete registration.

Note: This is how you will access your ALEKS PPL account in the future.

Complete the tools tutorial to unlock the placement assessment; this first assessment is a no-stress diagnostic because it does not produce an official placement score. Aleks uses the results of the assessment to tailor your math experience in the program specifically to you. (Note: The program will ask you to download a test security program called “Lockdown Browser”)

Once you finish the placement assessment, begin working through the Aleks math modules until your instructor contacts you and provides you with the camp syllabus.

Math Boot Camp Availability

The Math Boot Camp uses the AI-driven web-based software ALEKS PPL. The goal is to provide ample opportunities and guided assistance for students looking to improve their math placement and college math readiness.

Only a proctored ALEKS Placement Test can be used for official math placement. During the summer, students will need to come to campus to take their placement tests under proctored conditions. (Camp instructors will provide more details). Students will need to bring a picture ID (e.g. AUM ID or Driver’s License) to take the placement test.

**Note Regarding Registering for your Math Class:

Once you have completed the program and earned the ALEKS placement score you are happy with, please contact your advisor for guidance. Once your new score is entered into our system, you will be able to register for the math class for which you are now eligible using the appropriate alternate PIN.

If you have any questions, please contact Julie Berube in the Math Department at [email protected].
