Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the math requirements for your declared major in this Degrees and Programs listing for UNG.

The scores we have on file for you are located on your Tranguid, either in the Standardized Test Scores section or, in the case of MPI, the Learning Support section beneath the title MATH.

**If you need MATH 1111 for your degree program**, and you do not meet the eligibility requirements for

*MATH 1111*, but you do meet the requirements for

*MATH 1001*or

*MATH 1101*, you have three options:

- You may take
*MATH 1111*along with a three credit co-requisite Support class (*MATH 1111***plus***MATH 0999**– Support for College Algebra*). This co-requisite math is offered in distinct pairs, and both math classes are worth three credit hours towards enrollment hours. This option allows you to be in the appropriate math for your major your first semester. - You may take
*MATH 1001: Quantitative Skills*or*MATH 1101: Mathematical Models*and, upon earning a grade of C or higher, take*MATH 1111*the following semester. Note:*MATH 1001*and*MATH 1101*do not provide much*MATH 1111*preparation and are, instead, designed for majors that do not require*MATH 1111*. - You may take an Accuplacer
*MATH 1111*Eligibility Exam. The cost of the exam is $11.50, and must be completed prior to the start of the semester for which you applied. If you choose this option and score 266 or higher on the*MATH 1111*Eligibility Exam, we will adjust your advanced schedule accordingly.
