All math courses have prerequisites that must be satisfied before a student may register for a math course. The prerequisite may be satisfied by either a satisfactory score on the math placement assessment or by successful completion of the prerequisite course.
The placement assessment results are used to determine the highest level math (and statistics) course a student may initial take at VCU. The placement assessment does NOT give credit for a math course nor does it satisfy the Quantitative Literacy Requirement for graduation. If your major requires you to take a math class you will have to take a math class.
