APP Math Policy

Math skills are a required part of all undergraduate majors and especially crucial for success in engineering. AUIS wants all students to succeed in math. This means beginning in level 3, all APP students are required to take Math 1 or Math 2, depending on where they are placed on the Math placement exam. Completion of Math 1 (or its equivalent on the placement test) is required to graduate from APP. Math 2 is also offered to level 3 and 4 students.

At the end of APP level 2, all students take the Math Placement Exam.  They are placed in their math level.

  • Missing the Math Placement Exam will place the student into Math 1. 
  • Students are only allowed to take the Math Placement Exam one time (end of level 2)

In APP level 3 and APP level 4, all APP students are required to take Math 1 or Math 2, depending on where they placed on the Math Placement Exam. 

  • Completion of Math 1(or its equivalency on the placement test) is required to graduate from APP.
  • Failing in attendance is tied across the level.  Failing in attendance for Math will cause you to repeat your English classes.  Failing in attendance in English classes will cause you to repeat your math classes.
