Math Placement Test (MPT)
Starting May 8th, 2023, UCF has implemented Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) protection for all faculty, staff and students to access their Webcourses accounts.
As a student in the Math Placement webcourse, you will need to enroll in MFA via one of the options that pop-up when you first sign in to webcourses. Most students will need to use either the Duo mobile app or Microsoft Authenticator app. Please view this short video for instructions about how to log in to webcourses.ucf.edu with multi factor authentication.
Many students are getting an error message when trying to login for the first time. It is important to try using your NID@ucf.edu, and NOT your @knights.ucf.edu email when logging in.
You can find more information about using the knowledge base articles below. If you are having trouble with the MFA process, UCF IT Servicedesk and Webcourses@UCF Support can both help: 407-823-5117 and 407-823-0407.

The University believes that the appropriate placement of students into certain course sequences is important to help foster an environment of success. The UCF Math Placement Test (MPT) is administered to determine placement into the mathematics course sequence. The MPT will help students, with the assistance of their academic advisors, select math courses in which they are most prepared and will likely be successful.

- Past due tests
- Retake requests
- Re-access to tests
- Transfer student test eligibility/payment
- Testing accommodations
- MPT scores
- Request more in-depth information about the MP
The MPT should be completed from home on any computer with a secure and strong internet connection. Students will be allowed 1 hour and 45 minutes to complete the 25 algebra questions. If your algebra score is at least 350 of the possible 500 points you will be offered the opportunity to answer 15 trigonometry questions and 15 precalculus questions. You will have 1 hour 15 minutes for each of the trigonometry and precalculus sections. Completing the trigonometry and precalculus practice and placement tests are optional but highly recommended. The algebra, trigonometry, and precalculus tests do not have to be taken consecutively on the same day. Students have an unlimited number of attempts for the practice tests.
Beginning in the spring semester of 2022, all Math Placement Test (MPT) retakes will be offered primarily for in-person testing with a remote option available on a very limited basis. More information about pricing and availability can be found on Registerblast here.
The office of Student Accessibility Services (SAS) works in collaboration with the University Testing Center (UTC) to ensure that reasonable accommodations are made for students with documented disabilities. Students with disabilities seeking accommodations for placement tests must have approval from the SAS office (407-823-2371 or firstname.lastname@example.org). Note: test-takers should allow at least two (2) weeks for SAS and UTC to process the accommodation request once the formal request has been submitted to SAS.
Once UTC receives notification from the SAS office of a test-taker’s testing accommodations, a UTC staff member will notify the student via email.
Note: Test-takers seeking to test with accommodations must schedule their appointment time for Monday-Friday at 12:45 PM or earlier.
