Please answer carefully the following questions. We will be using this information in a variety of
ways to ensure that your first semester at Pacific University is a smooth and enjoyable one. Please
give us your best, most informed answers at this point in time. Please answer all the questions.
1. During your school experience so far, which academic subjects / courses do you find most
2. Which academic subjects / courses are the least interesting to you?
3. All graduates from Pacific must have completed at least one Pacific math course at the 165level or above (or SOC 301 or PSY 350) [or equivalent transfer course]. You may “transfer in”
from other institutions math courses/credits that may fulfill our math general education (Core)
requirement; thus, you may not have to take further math courses. It is critical that you provide
to us very specific information regarding your level of past experience with mathematics
courses—in high school and in other colleges/universities. The information you provide will
assist us in recording the appropriate “math placement” for you, i.e. what level of math course
you should/may begin in here at Pacific.
