^{1} | MATH 170 is highly recommended for math majors co-enrolled in MATH 150, MATH 151, MATH 152, MATH 171 or MATH 172. |

^{2} | Science electives should be chosen from biology, biochemistry, chemistry, genetics or physics courses after consultation with the student’s advisor. At least 6 hours must be 200-level or above. |

^{3} | Select 3 hours from any 200- to 400-level Language, philosophy and culture course. |

^{4} | Three hours must be creative arts and three hours must be social and behavioral sciences. In addition, six hours must be in the area of international and cultural diversity. These may be in addition to other University Core Curriculum courses, or if a course in this category satisfies an area of the Core, it can be used to meet both requirements. Students desiring teacher certification should consult the requirements for certification before registering for electives. |

^{5} | Twelve hours must be chosen from any 400- or 600-level MATH (excluding MATH 401, MATH 403 and MATH 601). Students are required to take at least one of the following: MATH 427, MATH 431, MATH 436, MATH 439. Students are encouraged to take MATH 412, MATH 414, MATH 442, or MATH 470. Students who plan to attend graduate school are encouraged to take MATH 447 and at least one 600-level course. Departmental permission is required to take MATH 485 or to enroll in a 600-level MATH course. |

If a grade of D or F is earned in any of the following courses, MATH 151/MATH 171, MATH 152/MATH 172, MATH 221/MATH 251/MATH 253, MATH 220, MATH 323 or MATH 308, this course must be immediately retaken and a grade of C or better earned. The department will allow at most two D's in upper-level (325-499) courses. If a third D is earned, one of the three courses in which a D was earned must be retaken and a grade of C or better earned.
