After watching these videos, you should have some idea of which you are most comfortable with and what best fits your program of study.

You can go ahead and register for any developmental math course with a number in the 0900 series. If any other course video sounds like your best fit, you’ll need to complete our SLCC Placement Process before registering.

We’ll ask you questions about your previous experience with math. We’ll also ask about your educational and career goals, followed by some skills questions. Most students complete the process in no more than 20 minutes.


After you complete the SLCC Placement Process, we’ll determine which math class you need to take first. If you have questions about your math scores please visit:
