Scores are sent directly to Gonzaga University, and will be used by the professional advisors in Academic Advising & Assistance to place you in your first semester math course.

If you wish to place higher, you have the option to retake the Assessment. For more information, please click here. Please note: Academic Honesty is very important to the University, and any violations are subject to academic sanctions. To review the Academic Honesty policy, please click here.

ALEKS Placement Scores

The information below shows where your assessment score places you, according to Major. 

*If you have placed into Math 147 Pre-Calculus, and you are planning to pursue Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, Mathematics, Physics or Engineering degrees, we strongly encourage you to either retake ALEKS in an attempt to improve your placement to MATH 157, or to enroll for a Pre-Calculus course this summer.  MATH 147 Pre-Calculus is planned to be offered this Summer at Gonzaga University.  New students interested in summer session courses must do so through the Gonzaga University Summer Term program.  For more information, click here.
