All DSP students are required to take the ALEKS placement test prior to the start of the program. To access the ALEKS placement test, students must first sign up for and attend a DSP Assessment Test.
The ALEKS math placement is an adaptive test with a scoring range of 0 to 100. ALEKS scores determine who will take DSP Math as follows:
- Students whose major is in the College of Liberal Arts (CLA) will take DSP Math if their ALEKS score is below 44.
- Students whose major is in the College of Science and Math (CSM) will take DSP Math if their ALEKS score is below 59.
DSP Math meets 2 hours each day for the duration of the program.
All DSP Math classes have tutors who attend every session.
