Graduation Requirements for a Bachelor's Degree
Mathematics Requirement (Effective Fall 2019)

 The university Mathematics requirement ensures that all students build a foundation of quantitative literacy.  Each student must complete the university Mathematics requirement by fulfilling one of the options below:
  1. Complete one of the following:
    a. Mathematics 101 and 102.
    b. Mathematics 103 or (Mathematics 103A and 103B) and Mathematics 101.
    c. Mathematics 103 or (Mathematics 103A and 103B) and Mathematics 102.
    Students who waive Mathematics103 via the Mathematics Placement Exam need only complete one course from 1.a. to fulfill the university Mathematics requirement.
  2. Complete both of the following:
    a. Mathematics 103 or (Mathematics 103A and 103B) or Mathematics 101 or 102; and
    b. Statistics and Probability 200 or 201
    Students who place directly into Statistics and Probability 200 or 201 need only to complete one course from 2.b. to fulfill the university Mathematics requirement.
  3. Complete both of the following:
    a. Mathematics 103 or (Mathematics 103A and 103B); and
    b. One of the following courses: Mathematics 114, 124, 132, 152H, or 201.
    Students who place into any course in 3.b. via the Mathematics Placement Exam need only complete the course in 3.b. to fulfill the university Mathematics requirement.
  4. Complete one of the following:
    a. Mathematics 116 or Lyman Briggs 117.
  5. Waiver through a proctored Mathematics Placement Exam yielding a score resulting in placement in Mathematics 132 (calculus). For additional information, refer to the statement on Academic Placement Tests – Mathematics (Algebra) in the Undergraduate Education section of this catalog.
Students who transfer one of the following: Mathematics 112, 114, or 201; or Statistics and Probability 200 or 201 alone, with no other mathematics course, must take the Mathematics Placement Exam. Based on the score achieved, additional course work may be required to fulfill the university Mathematics requirement.

Incoming freshmen who have taken a College Board Advanced Placement Examination in Mathematics should consult the statement on Academic Placement Tests. Transfer students should consult the statement on Transfer Student Admission.
