Math Placement

As a science an engineering school, math will play a huge role in your success here at NMT. Once you have been admitted, we ask that all incoming international underaduates take the math placement test. This will help the Math Department place you in the correct math classes to prepare you for your core classes. Please follow this link to the Math Placement test. By taking a test before you arrive on campus, you will be able to save time in resgistering for classes and will have one less item to take care of in what will be a very busy week.
