UGA Mathematics Exemption Test
Students who score between 12 and 15 will receive immediate MATH 1101 exemption (Mathematical Modeling) and may enroll in MATH 1113 (Pre-calculus).
Students who score 16 or higher will receive immediate MATH 1113 exemption and may begin their University studies with MATH 2200 or MATH 2250 (Differential Calculus).
No course CREDIT is given for exempted courses, however exemption of MATH 1113 or MATH 1101 may satisfy Core and/or Degree requirements.
Please be advised that you will not be allowed to exempt a course via the DMAT that you are, or previously have been, registered for at UGA. (In particular, you cannot withdraw from the course once it's begun and then take the exam.) Students who have taken MATH 1101 are, however, permitted to take the DMAT to try to exempt MATH 1113.
Some incoming students may have already earned Math credits through:
Scoring 3 or higher on the AP Calculus AB exam or the AP Calculus BC exam
Scoring 6 or higher on the IB Higher Level Mathematics exam
Earning dual enrollment credit in MATH 1113
