Math Equations on ChalkboardMathematics Transfer Degree Program

The Math program provides the fundamental mathematics courses to prepare general students and math and engineering majors for transfer to a four-year institution. 

A student’s class choices should be planned with the requirements of the transfer institution in mind.  See your advisor for enrollment information and transfer institution requirements.

Most students who decide to major in Mathematics at a four-year institution will plan a course of study that will lead to an Associate in Science Degree.
