Take Placement Assessment

  • New Kent Campus students are required to complete placement assessments online. All students need to complete the ALEKS Math placement assessment no later than 72 hours before attending Destination Kent State.
  • Transfer students who have not earned credit for Math OR completed a remedial math sequence within the past academic year must take the ALEKS assessment. Students are expected to complete all appropriate assessments prior to attending Transfer Kent State: Orientation, Advising and Registration or meeting with an academic advisor. Transfer students can contact their advising units once their credit evaluation has been completed to confirm their assessment needs.
  • Regional Campus students will receive instructions about whether to take placement assessments online or on campus during a Regional Campus orientation program or advising appointment
  • International students are required to complete the ALEKS math placement assessment before arriving on campus.

To access the placement assessment on Flashline, go to Student / Resources / Placement Assessments. Select Math and then choose "If you have never logged in to ALEKS, take the ALEKS Mathematics Placement Assessment". Be sure to take this assessment seriously, as it will determine which Math course you are placed into.
