All students who plan to major or minor in mathematics must see a math advisor before registering. Some students may need prerequisite courses. Advanced placement in mathematics is possible for well-prepared students. All prerequisite courses and all courses presented for the major and the minor must be completed with grades of C- or higher.
All credit must be approved by the mathematics faculty to be applied toward the major. At least four of the courses beyond MATH 233 must be completed at Roosevelt University.
Once a student begins taking math classes at Roosevelt, any additional courses taken outside of the university must get pre-approval in writing from the department chair in order to apply them to the math major.
