- Natural Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, or Geology) for majors 8 SH
- MTH 126 Calculus 2 4 SH
- MTH 227 Calculus 3 4 SH
- MTH 238 Applied Differential Equations 3 SH
- Electives, if any, should be selected from the disciplines covered in Areas I – IV, being cognizant of restrictions specified in this document.
- Restrictions on elective transfer hours:
- Developmental, remedial, or technical courses will not transfer
- A maximum of one computer course may transfer: CIS 146 is strongly recommended.
