NOTE: Placement into mathematics courses is based upon placement scores, ACT scores, or a grade of “C” or better in the prerequisite course. Students must consult an advisor before selecting a math course. Entrance requirements will be strictly enforced. Only one mathematics course below the course required for the degree and numbered above 100 may be used for elective credit and only if it is taken before the higher-level course.
