Level Test Codes:

ML -- indicates level is based on placement test.
Placement test cutoffs are set to assure students a 65% likelihood of earning a C- or better in the course where they are placed.

MTL -- indicates level is based on course work transferred to SOU.
Students with recent transfer course work will often be able to use those courses for placement rather than taking the placement test.

MOL -- indicated level was overridden and reset by mathematics faculty member.
In rare instances, a mathematics faculty member may override a student's placement.

Level Test Scores

The "Score" column indicates the maximum placement. Actual course numbers are used for placement into Math 065, 095, 111, 112, 251, 252, and 253. Use the Score of 100 for placement into entry-level courses (Mth 158, 211, 243, or EC 232). Students may take a course with a lower level than where they are placed.
