Math Placement

Development Math is required for graduation.  Part or all of the Developmental Math sequence can be waived for students earning particular scores on the ACT, SAT, or by waiver examination.  Students earning a 20 or higher on the Math ACT and a 10 or higher on the algebra sub-score waive the Developmental Math requirement (520 on the SAT Math). In addition, incoming students who transfer a college course that meets Berea's Practical Reasoning (Quantitative) requirement are waived from Developmental Math.  See additional details about the Developmental Math Requirement under degree requirements

Placement in credit-bearing math courses is determined by examination.
