This page pertains to University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign students who wish to take a NetMath® self-paced course.


Students currently enrolled in a University of Illinois Graduate Degree program are restricted from registering in 16-week Academic Year-term NetMath courses. Matriculating UIUC Grad students will be allowed to register in Summer Semester NetMath courses. 

Degree-seeking students at the University of Illinois may take a NetMath course during the Academic Year (AY) term or during the Summer term. Compare these options here.

Register in a Summer term NetMath course via Student Self-Service

UIUC degree-seeking students may register for a self-paced, AY term NetMath course using the CITL registration portal at NetMath Registration FormNote: Non-degree students will also use the same form to register in a NetMath course. 

  • Upon receiving your registration application form and confirmation of intent to enroll, our registrar at the Center for Innovation in Teaching & Learning (CITL) will contact your College for approval. 
  • Your College will review the approval request to see if you meet the stated prerequisites and other criteria specific to your UIUC degree program. CITL will process your NetMath course registration after receiving college approval. Note: If the approval request is denied, you will be informed of the reason and the office to contact for any follow up. 
  • NetMath self-paced courses are offered in the Academic Year term and do not count toward your semester credit load. 
  • During certain times of the year, such as the end of the Spring semester, colleges take longer to respond to approval requests. This causes delays in processing UIUC NetMath course registrations. College advisors may be waiting on final course grades for the semester and also busy with graduating students. We strongly suggest students keep this in mind when submitting their registration requests and plan accordingly. We encourage you to submit your request at least two weeks in advance of your desired course start date.

Placement Scores: Math 112, 115, and 220

All degree-seeking University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign students enrolling in Math 112, 115, or 220 are required to obtain a minimum ALEKS PPL placement score of 40% (Math 112), 65% (Math 115) or 80% (Math 220). AP credit and previous coursework do not satisfy nor exempt you from this requirement. For more information, please visit the ALEKS page.


UIUC students have to pay the same tuition as non-UIUC students for 16 week Academic Year (AY) term NetMath courses. These courses are offered for on-demand enrollment as self-paced options, therefore they are billed separately from your University of Illinois undergraduate tuition charges. Most types of financial aid do not apply to these sections because they are not semester based. Certain types of tuition assistance, such as those offered by the US Military, may apply. If you have questions regarding financial aid eligibility, please contact the campus Office of Student Financial Aid at: 217-333-0100 or

GPA and Transcript

NetMath courses are for credit and count towards your GPA. When a final grade is assigned, the course will appear on your UIUC transcript with the same name as a mathematics course you would take on campus. It will be listed under Academic Year courses.

Summer Semester

In addition to self-paced courses, NetMath also offers term-based courses during Summer Semester. Click here for more information about NetMath summer courses.

Grade Replacement

A NetMath course can be used for grade replacement. However, it is the student's responsibility to sign up for grade replacement soon after registering for the NetMath course. Please consult the undergraduate office of your home department for more information. Note that a grade replacement request may be rejected, and your college office will have information about such exceptions.
