Notes

  1. Students are strongly encouraged to complete their ENG and MTH requirements first.
  2. Students interested in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)-related transfer degrees should consider taking MTH 163 and MTH 164 to fulfill their math requirements. STEM students who need to complete developmental math modules 6 – 9 may elect to take MTH 158 instead and use it as a prerequisite for the MTH 163 course. Students pursuing non-STEM majors (i.e. liberal arts, social sciences, communication, etc.) should take MTH 157 and MTH 170. Please note that students must consult with an advisor since math requirements of different majors vary by program and transfer institution.
