Students with Math ACT sub-score of 28 or above, and with at least 8 weeks of trigonometry in high school may register for MATH 270 - Calculus I upon entry. Students with Math ACT sub-score between 26-27 may take the advanced placement test given by the Math Department or MATH 143 - Pre-Calculus Algebra and Trigonometry. Those who do not meet these qualifications and have an ACT sub-score in Math of at least 23 must take MATH 109 - Pre-Calculus Algebra and those with 24-25 may take MATH 109 and MATH 110 - Pre-Calculus Trigonometry and Function Theory, simultaneously. Students requiring precalculus courses are advised to complete these courses in the summer semester prior to the freshman year.
