Exit exams can be taken at the University Testing Center located in Library South, second floor.
Math exit exams are for placement purposes only. They are not intended as alternatives to passing a class. If a student has at any point enrolled in a MATH class at CSULA, then that student may not take any math exit exam, with the following exceptions:
Exception: A student whose one-year timeline (under EO665) for completing remediation in math has expired may take math exit exams. (Example: A student began in Fall 2011 but has not yet passed Math 91 by the end of Summer 2012. This student may then take math exit exams.)
Exception: A student who has passed MATH 1020 may take the Math 1081 exit exam.
Exception: If a student previously passed a math class, then the student may take the exit exam for that class. (This will be relevant to students whose prerequisite expired after a year. Example: A student who got a B in MATH 0930 more than one year ago may take the Math 0930 exit exam, in order to meet the prerequisite for MATH 1020.)
Note: The Math Department may allow additional exceptions for students with extraordinary circumstances.
Note: Students who have registered in a MATH class but not yet enrolled in any MATH classes may take math exit exams. (Example: In mid-July, student in Summer Bridge registers for a Fall Semester MATH 0930 course and wishes to take the Math 0930 exit exam in late July. That student may take the Math 0930 exit exam, because the semester hasn't started yet; therefore the student has not yet enrolled in the course, even though he or she has registered for it.)
Note: Early Start math courses will not be considered MATH courses, because they have the prefix ESM instead of MATH. Indeed, we encourage Early Start instructors to advise selected students to take exit exams as appropriate before Fall Semester, so that students can begin their college careers in the correct MATH course when they matriculate.
All exams are multiple-choice. Each exam can be taken two times per quarter, but not more than once a day.
The outcome of an exit exam does not affect any course grades. Passing an exit exam does not give credit for the corresponding course.
No more than two exit exams per student per course per any given three-month period. (Example: A student takes the Math 1081 exit exam on Sept. 5, 2016 and again on Sept. 17, 2016 and does not pass either time. The student may not take the exam again until Dec. 5, 2016.)
No more than one exit exam per student per course per day. (Example 1: A student takes a Math 0920 exit exam and passes. That student may then take the Math 0930 exit exam later that day. Example 2: A student takes a Math 0930 exit exam and does not pass. That student may not take the Math 0930 exit exam again later that day.)
Exit exam scores are good for one year as a prerequisite.
