MCC Math Placement Exam (MPE)

The McLennan Community College Math Placement Exam (MPE) is a non-credit option for students seeking admission into a higher-level math course at McLennan Community College. The MCC Math Placement Exam is used to measure a student’s preparedness to be successful in Precalculus (MATH 2412) or Calculus I (MATH 2413). There are two parts that make up the complete MPE. The Algebra Placement Exam allows a student to test out of College Algebra (MATH 1314) and the Precalculus Placement Exam allows a student to place out of College Algebra and Precalculus (MATH 2412).

TESTING ACCOMMODATIONS
The MCC Testing Center works closely with Accommodations (Disability Services) to provide services for students with ADA accommodations. Testing candidates requiring testing accommodations must register first with Accommodations. The registration process with Accommodations should be done in a timely manner to allow enough reasonable time for the Testing Center to prepare all testing accommodations.

Once testing accommodations have been approved, the student must inform the MCC Testing Center of his or her approved testing accommodations, so their RegisterBlast account can be appropriately set-up prior to registering for an exam. Students who do not follow these steps run the risk of not having their testing accommodations for that exam.

See the Requesting Accommodations webpage for process information. See webpage for ACT & SAT, CLEP, and HiSet for information on how to request accommodations for these exams.

FOR STUDENTS FROM ANOTHER COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY:
Your college or university must submit a Letter of Accommodation to the MCC Testing Center before any testing accommodations will be provided. Email to testingcenter@mclennan.edu or fax to 254-299-6200 Attn: Testing Services.

Note: Any student who has approved accommodations and who cannot see or select their approved testing accommodation when registering for an exam should contact the MCC Testing Center immediately and prior to registering for any exams.
