or if SAT math is 540 or less.
*Students who perform well on the Elementary Algebra test will be informed
via their placement test results to consider taking the College Level Math
test if their major requires higher level math enrollment.

*Students with ACT math scores of 24-25 & SAT math scores of 550-590 will
also be given the choice to take the College Level Math test and will be
provided information at orientation to determine if their major requires a
higher level math enrollment.
Students with accelerated credit in
math from Advanced Placement- AP (scores: 3-5), International
Baccalaureate- IB (scores: 4-7), Advanced International Certificate
of Education- AICE (grades A-E), or College Level Examination
Program- CLEP (scores of 50+) should
review FGCU
course equivalencies here and report these scores to First Year Advising
as prompted prior to math placement testing the morning of the first day of
freshmen orientation. If test scores or grades are unknown or pending
then these scores should not be reported at orientation. *Students are
responsible to double check their transcript for any credit that may be
awarded later due to pending scores or transfer credit articulation to
prevent duplication of credit from any previous college coursework or
accelerated credit mechanism (i.e. Dual Enrollment, AP, IB, AICE, CLEP)
ACT / SAT math qualifying scores &
math placement testing
Students with official ACT math scores of 24 or higher & SAT
math scores of 550 or higher are pre-qualified to enroll in College Algebra (MAC
1105 & MAC 1105L), Finite Math (MGF 1106), General Math (MGF 1107) and Statistics (STA
2023).
*Students with ACT math scores of 24-25 & SAT math scores of 550-590 will
also be given the choice to take the College Level Math (CLM) test and will
be provided information at orientation to determine if their major requires
a higher level math enrollment.
See
major
tracks for recommended math sequences. Undeclared students meeting
the score criteria above are recommended to enroll in College Algebra (MAC 1105
& MAC 1105L).
Students with ACT math scores of 26 or higher and SAT math scores of 600
or higher will be automatically guided to take the College Level Math (CLM)
test at orientation to gauge readiness for higher level math enrollment.
*Students with ACT math scores of 24-25 & SAT math scores of 550-590 will
also be given the choice to take the College Level Math test and will be
provided information at orientation to determine if their major requires a
higher level math enrollment.
Students intending enrollment in calculus level math curriculum should discuss
their intentions with a
first year advisor
as a testing referral for the Accuplacer College Level Math (CLM) test may be
necessary.
Students with accelerated math credit from Advanced Placement (AP),
International Baccalaureate (IB), Dual Enrollment (DE), College Level
Examination Program (CLEP), or college/university level math transfer credit
should complete an
accelerated credit declaration form for submission to their advisor the
first day of freshmen orientation.
Students admitted without math remediation are automatically qualified
to enroll in Intermediate Algebra (MAT 1033 & MAT 1033L). Intermediate
Algebra is a preparatory elective requiring a C or better grade to meet
general education math prerequisite requirements. The math placement
test given at orientation will provide students not meeting the ACT & SAT
math minimums referenced above the opportunity to test into higher levels of
math enrollment via the Accuplacer Elementary Algebra (EA) placement test.
Foreign Language placement testing option
Students with strong foreign language proficiency may opt
to take an online foreign language exam ($10 charge) to help determine
prospective advanced enrollment in FGCU foreign language course offerings in
Chinese, French, German, Russian and Spanish as available. Consulting
