Math Placement as Part of the Admissions Requirements
To be reviewed for admission into the First Year Track Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program*, you must demonstrate readiness for the academic expectations. One requirement is the demonstration of proficiency in intermediate algebra via a math assessment.
If you demonstrate proficiency in intermediate algebra via the assessment, your application will be forwarded to the Nursing and Health Studies Program office for review into the major.
If you do not demonstrate proficiency in intermediate algebra via the assessment, your application will remain with the UW Bothell Admissions Office for general advisement and exploration of alternate entries into a BSN program and majors including the Bachelor of Arts in Health Studies.
Please note enrolled first-year or second-year UW Bothell students may not apply to the First Year Track Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program.
The math assessment is through the Academic Placement Testing Program. It is available at the UW Bothell and Seattle campuses.The assessment fee is $20.00. The format is paper and pencil. You will receive a packet of information as part of the application process with information on scheduling the math assessment.
Preparing for the Assessment:
You will take the General Test. In preparation to take the math assessment, you can review general practice problems.
*First Year Track BSN is pending university approval.
