Mathematics Major Core Requirements
Courses required for the major may not be taken pass/fail, and a 2.0 minimum GPA is required.

Admission to the Major Requirements

  1. Applications for admission to the major are accepted at any time during fall and spring semesters. Decisions are made within ten working days of receipt of application. Application forms are available in the Mathematics Department office.
  2. Applications are evaluated, and admission decided, by a faculty committee.
  3. Applicants must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0.
  4. The mathematics core consists of MATH 171, 172, and 220. These courses (or their equivalent for transfer students) must be completed before application.
  5. Students with at least a 2.5 GPA in the mathematics core will be admitted automatically. Those with less than a 2.0 GPA in the mathematics core will normally not be admitted. Others will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  6. Appeals related to admission decisions are considered by the department chairperson.
  7. Students who are denied admission may reapply after completing at least 12 more credits, whereupon decisions are based on grades in mathematics, science, and computer science courses; cumulative GPA and grade patterns; and a personal interview.
  8. Admitted students whose cumulative GPA or GPA in MATH courses numbered 171 and above falls below 2.0 for two consecutive semesters, or who are academically deficient, are subject to release from the major.
  9. Applications for readmission are handled in the same manner as admission applications for those previously denied.
