Math Criteria Chart

The following charts outline the requirements for first-year courses in Mathematics at their respected campus.

Students may write the SAT® Subject Test in Mathematics Level I (SATMI) as often as they wish. It is recommended that students write the SATMI in order to receive their score prior to registration. Dates for the SATMI can be found at www.collegeboard.org.
