Additional Information
 
Regulations and Notes

  1. Electives must include at least a 0.5 credit from Division A.
  2. For progression and for graduation, a minimum cumulative GPA of 4.00 in Mathematics and an overall GPA of 4.00 is required.
  3. EC260 and CP114 are recommended.
  4. Based on the results of the Calculus Placement Evaluation, an entering student may be advised to enroll in MA110*, rather than MA103, in Year 1; then MA104 would be completed in Fall term of Year 2 and MA215 in Fall term of Year 3, in place of the 0.5 non-BU elective. Hence, students who have credit for MA110* require only 1.0 non-BU elective credits.
