What is MATH 110 Placement?

Do I need it?

At UNC-Chapel Hill, students must demonstrate proficiency in college-level algebra before enrolling in certain quantitative (science/math/statistic) courses. This prerequisite is known as MATH 110 PL (placement). *MATH 110 does not fulfill the quantitative reasoning requirement or any other general education requirement.*

MATH 110 PL is obtained by earning a specific minimum score on national standardized math tests. A full listing of tests accepted and credits is available online.

If you are planning on taking any of the following courses and/or programs of study, you must have MATH 110 PL as a prerequisite:

- Business (requires statistics/calculus-based course)
- Chemistry (including CHEM 101)
- Economics (major)
- Exercise and Sport Sciences (all concentrations except Sports Administration)
- Statistics (all STOR classes)
- Math/Calculus (MATH 130 and above)
- Management and Society (major)
- Most science majors (including Psychology BS)
- Pre-Med/Dental course work

Additionally, the following majors have *recommended *coursework that require MATH 110: Psychology (BA), Journalism (all concentrations).

If your anticipated course of study __does not__ include any of the above, you are not required to have MATH 110 PL and may exit this system if you wish. (Click here for a list of Quantitative Reasoning courses that do not require MATH 110 PL.)
