MATH-1100 Mathematical Explorations or MATH-1240 Contemporary Mathematics taken before Fall 2024 will be accepted to meet math requirements for this program.


Can be waived with documentation of equivalent experience. Minimum of 60 credits for the degree still required.


 PL grades below a "C" will not be accepted and those courses will have to be re-taken. 

MATH-1140, MATH-1141, MATH-1200, MATH-1270, and MATH-1280 can no longer count towards fulfilling the college-level mathematics requirement.  These courses were re-classified as developmental mathematics by the state of Ohio in 2016.  Tri-C established a 5-year transitioning window for students who had completed these courses prior to 2016 to apply them towards meeting graduation requirements, which expired in Summer 2021. It is highly recommended to see a counselor to determine the appropriate math required for your current major.
