Program Description

The mathematics program provides students the opportunity to complete the lower-division coursework required for four-year programs in mathematics. For students who plan to transfer, completion of the CSU General-Breadth or IGETC general education pattern is encouraged. It is highly recommended that students meet with a counselor because major and general education requirements vary for each college/university. These courses also fulfill general education requirements for allied health, biological sciences, physical sciences, computer science and engineering.

Note: Students planning to transfer to four-year institutions are advised to meet with a counselor for general education requirements.

Note: The University of California has a credit restriction on certain combinations of mathematics courses. See counselor for detailed information on the current UC Transferable Course Agreement.
