Credit by Exam
The Mathematics Department offers credit by examination in MTH 150-College Algebra, MTH 151-Precalculus, MTH 207-Calculus I, and MTH 208-Calculus II. The exams are only available for incoming freshmen.
The Credit by Exam for MTH 150 College Algebra is usually given in the second week of class in the Fall semester.
The other exams (MTH 151, MTH 207 or MTH 208), are given on an individual basis. See the Department chair, Dr. David Koster (1001 Cowley) to make arrangements for these exams. Students may only receive credit for one of MTH 150 or MTH 151.
Students earning a grade of "B" or better in their first attempt at MTH 207, MTH 208, MTH 309 or MTH 310 will be given retroactive credit for MTH 151 provided that the student's transcript shows no prior or concurrent enrollment in any of these courses.
