Mathematics Course Descriptions

Scheduling requirements and limited resources prevent all courses from being offered every term or every year.  Some courses may be offered exclusively via distance delivery. Course numbers, titles, course and program applicability, prerequisites, instructional format, delivery methods, and content may change without notice.  Students are advised to consult with an advising specialist each term to select courses, create and maintain personal educational plans, and obtain the most current information.
