Registration Errors and Restricted Sections

Math 1215X, 1215Y, and 1215Z (formerly 101, 102, and 103)
Students cannot register for Math 1215Z 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 1215X and 1215Y (102) for the same semester (Math 1215X first half and corresponding Math 1215Y for the second half). To register for Math 1215Z, 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).

Math 1130 (129) & Math 1350 (formerly Stat 145 have pre-reqs of Math 1215X & 1215Y or ACT/SAT/Accuplacer scores.

If a student is placed into Math 1130 (Math 129) or Math 1350 (Stat 145) but wants to take college algebra (Math 1220) the student must take Math 1215X, 1215Y, and 1215Z and earn a C or better OR they may take the Advanced Algebra & Functions Accuplacer (AAF).
