In order to enroll in entry-level college Mathematics courses, a student must demonstrate appropriate background mathematical knowledge and skills. Depending upon the course, there are multiple ways of demonstrating this knowledge. It is required that the Math prerequisites outlined HERE, be met BEFORE attending your NSO date.

A student who is not a native speaker and who has not begun language study at UMSL, but who believes that he or she can demonstrate the requisite proficiency level in French, German, or Spanish to test out of a semester or more of language may take a language placement test. Back credit, free of charge, is available to students who place into the second, third or fourth semester language course and complete the course with a satisfactory grade. Up to 13 credit hours of back credit may be earned, but a placement test score is required to begin the process. Students who have already earned advanced credit for language courses are not eligible for back credit for courses they have already taken but are welcome to take the placement test to determine if they are truly ready for university level language beyond their advanced placement level.
If you plan to take a language during your first semester and feel that may be able to test out of any language courses, please contact Jim Karslake at email@example.com or 314-516-6240 to sign up for language placement testing BEFORE attending your NSO date.
