If you have chosen a program within the Quantitative Reasoning Pathway then you will take 1 of 2 math classes.  If you are college-ready, meaning you have assessed using ACT/SAT/PSAT scores, high school GPA, previous college courses or degree, or you have scored well on the Accuplacer, they you could be placed in MATH 123.  If you have assessed below college-ready and need to enroll in college prep classes first, you will be placed in MATH 080.

In this pathway, your journey through MATH will look like this.  Please note that if you test in to MATH 080 you will also take MATH 123 as a co-requisite.  This means that the two classes will be taken at the same time.  For more information, please talk with your advisor.:
