WAMAP Math Entrance Exams

Math placement can be achieved through online Math Entrance exams using the Washington Mathematics Assessment and Placement (WAMAP) testing platform.  

  • Test Fee: No fee for Green River students. Non-students pay $10 per test.
  • Time: Untimed, plan to allow at least 1 to 1.5 hours to complete this assessment
  • Mode: Computer based
  • Process: Complete a Distance Placement Proctoring request and select new or retake. Students should take the test for the math class they are attempting to enter. For example, if you wish to get into Math 072, take WAMAP for Math 072
  • Calculator Use: Calculators are allowed for all WAMAP exams
  • Note: As of October 22, 2020, all students will have placement into Math 062. Students can place into higher Math courses by passing the WAMAP Math Assessment for their desired level

Requesting Placement Scores

Students who have already taken an assessment and need a copy of their placement scores for use at other institutions may request those to be emailed, faxed, mailed or picked-up in person at the Main Campus in Auburn. Please complete and submit the Placement Score Request form to request scores. Please be aware that placement scores are valid for two years. After two years, the scores will no longer give placement. 

Distance Proctoring

Due to COVID-19, we are conducting limited in-person testing Mondays and Thursdays by appointment. Because of this, we are offering our placement assessments remotely. In order to take your assessments, you will need to fill out and submit the Remote Proctoring Request. 

To take the WAMAP Math assessment, you will need to know which level you want to test into. We have a practice test to help you determine that. Please go to www.greenriver.edu/WAMAP and follow the “Getting Started” steps to access the practice site.

Instructions for taking assessments are sent to you at the email account provided on the request form.
