Math Milestone and MPT Score Interpretation
INFORMATION REGARDING PLACEMENT INTO MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS COURSES (effective May, 2023)
First time freshmen will be assigned Math Milestones based on their high school math history. If that Math Milestone does not reflect your background and history of achievements in mathematics, you can take the Hunter College Math Placement Test (MPT). Transfer students must take the MPT and achieve certain scores to determine permissions for mathematics and statistics courses at Hunter College, with the exception of MATH 10000, MATH 10200 or STAT 11000. Questions regarding the administration of the MPT should be directed to the Testing Center via email at testing@hunter.cuny.edu
If you need to take a math/stat course for your course of study, you may take course “x” if you have the following MPT scores or Math Milestone:
