Frequently Asked Questions:

Do Pre-requisite math courses expire and do I have to earn a specific grade for it to count?

Yes! And, yes! ALL math courses expire, as prerequistites, TWO years after they have been completed. A passing grade is defined as earning a C or better. See the table below for specific expiration dates and grade requirements.

What classes do I take to prepare for college mathematics?

To know where you want to start, you must know where you want/need to end.  Speak with your program advisor to learn what math course(s) and/or quantitative literacy (QL) are required for your program of study. Then use the Choose Your Math Path document to determine which path to take toward QL completion. If you have questions or are unsure which path is best for your program, talk with an academic advisor.


Am I ready for the class that I have been placed in?

Do a self-assessment quiz to help you determine if you have been placed in the right level of math. If your official placement is lower than your self-assessment indicates, you can challenge your placement using ALEKS PPL - Placement, Preparation, and Learning

What can I do if my math prerequisite has expired?

If your math prerequisite has expired, we invite you to use one of the following options to restart your math path.

  • ALEKS: ALEKS is a user-friendly online math learning system. It gives you an overview of your math strengths and weaknesses, provides learning modules to help you improve your skills and can improve your math placement. Learn more about ALEKS.
  • Register for the math course: Students are always welcome to enroll in the course matching their math placement level. However, most students discover they remember most, if not all, of the content covered and ALEKS or Math Prep tend to be better options. 

I did not pass my quiz/test, now what?

Learn more about how to review quizzes and tests here and get a few extra suggestions prior to meeting with your instructor!


What can I do to tame my test anxiety?

Experiencing test anxiety is natural. In fact, most people experience some level of anxiety before and during tests.  While a certain level of anxiety is beneficial, too much can be detrimental if it prevents them from studying, preparing properly, or concentrating during a test.

Weber State's counseling center has great resources to help our students who may be struggling with test anxiety. Go here for more information.
