Note: Students should check mathematics course recommendations with the college or university to which they intend to transfer. The receiving institution always makes the final decision concerning transferability of credits. Information about mathematics course equivalencies among New Jersey institutions is available at www.njtransfer.org.

For initial selection of a mathematics course, check with the Math Department. Students who have completed math courses at another college must present transcripts and course outlines or syllabi. Consult mathematics faculty for advice.

Applicability of credits for courses below the 100 level toward degree requirements is limited. Consult an academic advisor. All prerequisite courses must be passed with a minimum C grade before enrolling in any subsequent mathematics course.
