In order to register for following Calculus course, one must satisfy any one of the condition:

Math 151

  • A grade of 85 or better on the New York State Trig or Common Core Trig Regents Examination.
  • A grade of 650 or better on the SAT Mathematics exam (before March 2016).
  • A grade of 670 or better on the SAT Mathematics exam (after March 2016).
  • A grade of C- or better in Math 122 (Precalculus).

Math 141

  • A grade of 80 or better on the New York State Trig or Common Core Trig Regents Examination.
  • A grade of 600 or better on the SAT Mathematics exam (before March 2016).
  • A grade of 620 or better on the SAT Mathematics exam (after March 2016).
  • A grade of C- or better in Math 122 (Precalculus).

Math 131

  • A grade of 90 or better on the New York State Algebra I or Common Core Algebra Regents Examination AND a grade of 75 or better on the New York State Trig or Common Core Trig Regents Examination.
  • A grade of 600 or better on the SAT Mathematics exam (before March 2016).
  • A grade of 620 or better on the SAT Mathematics exam (after March 2016).
  • A grade of C- or better in Math 122 (Precalculus).
  • A grade of B- or better in Math 115 (College algebra for precalculus).

 
Placement into a calculus course via the ACCUPLACER mathematics placement exam.
All students registered for Math 122 who have not received a grade of C- or better in Math 115 (College algebra for precalculus) must take the ACCUPLACER math placement exam by the end of the first week of the semester. The results of this test will determine whether or not the student will be required to take an additional workshop and whether or not the student will be transferred to a section of College Algebra for Precalculus.
 
Math 113 and 114 do not prepare students for calculus; they are designed for nonmathematics and nonscience students who want to take a course in mathematics appreciation or in probability and statistics.

In order to register for Math 131, 132, 141, 142, 143, 151, 152, 158, or 201, a student must pass the appropriate prerequisite course with a grade of C- or better. This requirement will be enforced vigorously; it can be waived only upon approval of the department Chair.

Students who have received advanced placement credit for a calculus course cannot receive credit for Math 110, Math 115 (Math 190.3), Math 122 or different calculus sequence.
