The mathematics program offers courses that range from the development of basic skills through college-level topics. Most of the courses are offered in various delivery modes including traditional classroom setting, online eLearning, and hybrid combining both classroom and online experiences.
To satisfy the quantitative requirement for a transfer degree, students will need to complete either MATH& 107 , MATH& 141 , MATH& 146 , or higher. Each of these courses require an appropriate placement score or completion of MATH 098 (MATH 099 for those who want to take MATH& 141 ) with a grade of C or better before enrolling. Students who plan to pursue a degree in a science related field should take MATH& 141 , MATH& 142 , and continue through the Calculus sequence.
