What your Mainecard can do?

Math Placement Testing
All students entering UMaine must be placed in the correct math classes. If you have a 670 on the math portion of the SAT, or a 29 on the math portion of the ACT, then you can be enrolled in any math class up to MAT 126 (Calculus I); all other students must take the mathematics placement exam.
To take the exam, wait 24 hours after activating your UMS account and then:
- Go to ALEKS.
- Log in using your UMS ID and password. Call IT Help, 207.581.2506, if you need help logging in.
- Select MAT 001-Math Placement Exam from your course list.
You have three attempts for each of the three parts of the exam, so if you are not satisfied with your first placement results, we suggest reviewing your high school mathematics and then trying again.
