Students cannot register for Math 103 until they have completed specific benchmarks as set by the Mathematics Department and the instructor. Each class is worth one credit hour. Students generally register for Math 101 and 102 for the same semester (Math 101 first half and corresponding Math 102 for the second half). To register for Math 103, students will need to work with their instructor.

Students cannot get credit for both Math 1430 (180) & 1440 (181) and Math 1512 (162) & 1522 (163).

Students must complete Math 1220 (121) or higher before being allowed to register for General Chemistry 1 (Chem 1215).

Students wishing to take Math 1220 and Chem 1215/1215L in the same semester must take the ALEKs placement exam. Information provided by Dr. Ho.

Math 1130 (129) & Math 1350 (formerly Stat 145 have pre-reqs of Math 101 & 102 or ACT/SAT/AccuPlacer scores.

Before enrolling in Math 1250, please meet with your A&S Advisor.
