What's the difference?

CALCULUS PLACEMENT EXAM:

Nearly all Students who wish to enroll in Math 30, or Math 30P are required to take the Calculus Placement Examination (CPE).  This exam does not exempt students from the Entry Level Math (ELM) exam. The Calculus Placement Exam (CPE) covers material from four years of college prep math, specifically: College Algebra, Trigonometry, and Properties of Elementary Functions.  Some review problems are posted at Review .  Please read the following instructions carefully.

You MUST sign up for the exam PRIOR to the day of the exam (CPE Schedule). Registrations are not allowed on the same day as the exam.

 

EXCEPTIONS:

If you have passed Math 8 with a C- or better, then you should be able to go directly to my.sjsu.edu and register for Math 19 and 19W (workshop).  If you have passed Math 19 with a C or better, then you should be able to go directly to my.sjsu.edu and register for Math 30P and 30W. If you have passed Math 19 with a B or better, then you should be able to go directly to my.sjsu.edu and register for Math 30 (Math 30W workshop is optional for Math 30 students). 

Exemptions from the CPE for getting into Math 30 or 30P are given to students who received a score of 3 or higher on the Calculus AP test or to students who have taken Calculus at a community college or university.   These students need to submit their AP Score Result or a transcript.   DO NOT SEND THE SCORE RESULTS OR THE TRANSCRIPTS to Admissions and Records.  Have the AP Score Result or transcripts sent to you and attach them to the Course Request form and send it to:


Calculus Coordinator
Department of Mathematics
One Washington Square 
San Josť State University
San Jose CA 95192-0103

Exemptions from the CPE for getting into Math 19 are given to students who were exempt from ELM by virtue of SAT or ACT scores.  In this case, contact the Math Department office. You may also download the Precalculus Course Request form below and either mail it or fax (408-924-5080) to us.
 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Students who are repeating a class or who are taking the class through Open University/Continuing Education CANNOT register before the first day of class.  These students should attend a section of the class and the instructor will have further instructions.

Note: Passing the ELM or the Developmental Classes does NOT exempt you from taking the CPE.

The directions below cover most cases.  If not, please contact the Calculus Coordinator for special instructions.  Thank you for your patience.
