Start by choosing the option that describes you best:

If you do need to take the ALEKS assessment, you will login to take the assessment online through the links on the right, and there is no fee or registration required.  In case you are not satisfied with your score on the ALEKS assessment, you will be given the chance to take the assessment up to five times.  In addition, there is a free online study/review package that you can use to review and prepare for the ALEKS assessment and your upcoming math course at MU.  In most cases, your score on the ALEKS assessment will determine your math course placement.
