Placement Information
High school courses
are not accepted as equivalent to college courses. Every new incoming student
will be required to take the math assessment unless he/she has satisfied the
prerequisite by a college level course or a comparable assessment process from
another college (must not be based on high school transcripts). Assessment
results are valid only for one year.
Those students
placing above Math 125 please note:
If the
placement information given to you does not fit your circumstances, see Math
Department for more detailed evaluation.
Prerequisites:
Specified
prerequisites must be completed with a satisfactory grade or equivalent.
