Admission to the mathematics majors (all concentrations) and minor is contingent on students successfully passing the following introductory courses or their equivalents:

  • Mathematics 19A, Calculus for Science, Engineering, and Mathematics, Or Mathematics 20A, Honors Calculus
  • Mathematics 19B, Calculus for Science, Engineering, and Mathematics, Or Mathematics 20B, Honors Calculus
  • MATH 21, Linear Algebra

Students may only declare once they have passed all introductory courses or their equivalent courses with a grade of C (2.0) or better. Students who receive two grades of NP, C-, D+, D, D-, or F in the introductory courses are not eligible to declare in the major or minor. Students who are not eligible to declare may appeal. The advising office will subsequently notify the student, and the college of the decision, no later than 15 business days after the submission of the appeal.
