Quantitative Literacy

QL Readiness

After you are admitted and decide to attend Ithaca College, you will complete an online assessment of the mathematical skills necessary to succeed in courses with a quantitative literacy designation.  If students fail the QL portion of the exam, they may retake the QL portion.  Otherwise, Group 4 students must take MATH 10000 or MATH 18000; others must take any math course at the 10000 level for which their placement qualifies them.  Once students pass the appropriate course with C- or better, they become eligible to take QL-designated courses.
