Math Course Recommendations

When selecting the appropriate math course, you need to consider your major!  You have received two math course placement recommendations that lead to different paths.  The Statistics, Liberal Arts Math (SLAM) track is for students interested in the Social Sciences, Nursing, Teaching, Art, Psychology and Sociology majors to name a few.  Students interested in Business, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (BSTEM) majors should take a course under the B-STEM track. We STRONGLY encourage you to speak with a counselor to select the appropriate math course.  Counselors are available on a First Come, First Serve basis in D-106 or click here​ to be directed to the Counseling page.
