Mathematics (MTH)

Mathematics

Prerequisite: In satisfying math course prerequisite requirements, an equivalent course must be a college course appearing on the student’s transcript.


Placement: Any student who has completed a college mathematics course within the past two years is not eligible for placement based on the mathematics placement assessment. Course placement will be guided by the previously completed math courses.
