Access to the Mathematics Assessment of Prerequisites (MAP) is done through Blackboard, USC's Learning Management System. You must have a valid USC network username and password to log in to Blackboard. If you have been admitted but do not have, or do not know, your network credentials, please contact the Division of IT at (803)-777-1156 (M – F; 8am – 5pm).

Newly admitted and new transfer students are usually automatically enrolled by early- to mid-May in a Blackboard course with Course ID "CASMATH-3MAP" followed by a section number. If you are a current student, and you wish to take or retake the assessment, then please accurately complete the take/retake MAP form.

Once you complete the MAP, you can see your score by clicking on the link "My MAP Scores" on the left course menu in Blackboard. Your official score should also be added into your account within two days.
