Math Pathways



Math is more than a graduation requirement; it can be the gateway to your future major. By following your pathway, you will develop the skills you need to be successful in your major.

All students need to complete or test out of Math 102, Math 103, Math 104, or Math 111 to satisfy the Computational Skill requirement for graduation. Your math pathway should be based on your academic interest or major, and where you start on the path is determined by your placement test score.


You can meet your graduation requirement by completing one of these courses

Math 102   Survey of Math
Math 103   Elementary Statistics
Math 104   Quantitative Reasoning
Math 111   College Algebra

Majors, such as business and STEM majors, require additional math.
