Placement Exam Information


The Math Placement Exam determines your readiness for MATH 1451, the first math class in engineering degree plans. Students who have yet to earn college credit for pre-calculus, trigonometry, or geometry need to take the MPE prior to registration. We strongly encourage students new to Texas Tech to complete the MPE prior to attending RRO.


The Chemistry Placement Exam is used to determine readiness for Chemistry 1307, the required Chemistry course for most majors in the Whitacre College of Engineering. Students have only one opportunity to take this test, so we highly recommend doing so prior to RRO.
