Take the ALEKS math placement assessment

The ALEKS math placement assessment is the best way to get placed into your major-recommended first semester math course. Those students who need to take ALEKS in order to place may do so at this time. Orientation Leaders will take you to the testing location on our Evansdale campus.

Check-in (for students not needing to take ALEKS math placement assessment)

Does your major not require a math course? Are you already placed into your recommended math, based on your major requirement? You can check-in to Lincoln Hall at 7:00 p.m., receive your room key and get paired with a roommate at this time.

Your guest(s) can drop you off in front of Lincoln Hall’s main entrance. If you are driving yourself, overnight parking is provided across the street from Lincoln Hall at the Erickson Alumni Center.

Floor meetings with Orientation Leaders

Wondering what it will be like to live on campus?
