Q: How can I find out what my score means?

A: Go to [Placement into Mathematics Courses at MSU].

Q: How can I get answers to my questions about entry-level mathematics courses?

A: Please begin by reading [Basic Course Information for Advisors and Advisees] and [Preparing for MSU Math].

Q: How can I get answers to questions about transferring university credits?

A: Go to [Transferring Credits to MSU]; otherwise, please contact the Office of Admissions (517 355-8332) directly.

Q: How can I get answers to all of my other questions about admission and enrollment at MSU?

A: Go to the [Office of Admissions Website]; otherwise, please contact the Office of Admissions (517 355-8332) directly.

Q: How can I get answers to other questions that are specifically about the Math Placement Service?

If the answers you seek really are not found in either document, then call 1-800-500-1554.  From this general MSU 800 number, trained university operators will refer you to appropriate venues where your questions most likely can be answered both quickly and correctly.

BEFORE SUBMITTING A QUESTION TO THE E-MAIL ADDRESS GIVEN BELOW, PLEASE MAKE CERTAIN THAT THE ANSWER IS NOT GIVEN ELSEWHERE, WITHIN THE BASIC INFO, THE FAQ DOCUMENT, OR THE REFERENCES GIVEN WITHIN THOSE DOCUMENTS, AND THAT THE QUESTION SPECIFICALLY CONCERNS THE MATH PLACEMENT SERVICE EXAM.  For example, questions about [who must take the exam], [obtaining your score], or [what your score means] are NOT appropriate, since these questions are answered elsewhere.  Questions sent to

mps@math.msu.edu

will be answered on a first come, first served basis.  This e-mail address is NOT a high-capacity information service; so, quick replies are not possible and should not be expected, particularly between mid-March and mid-July!
