2016-2017 Undergraduate Catalog


The basic skills requirement in mathematics may be met by earning a grade of C- or higher in both MATH 111 and MATH 112, or in any lower-division mathematics course numbered 120 or above. For other options, see Basic Academic Skills in the General Information chapter.

A student may not receive credit for a lower-division mathematics course if it serves as a prerequisite to a lower-division math course that the student had previously passed with a grade of C- or better.

Note: Students without an adequate placement score to enroll in MATH 111, MATH 120 or MATH 210G can gain admission to the course by earning a C- or better in CCDM 114N at an NMSU branch campus. Students wishing to enroll in MATH 121, 142G, 180, 191, 230, 235, 279, 280, or STAT 251 must satisfy one of the following: (a) have passed the stated prerequisite course with a C- or better, or (b) have earned an adequate score on the Mathematics Placement Examination, the results of which will be made available to the student’s advisor. The Mathematics Placement Examination (MPE) is given daily in Walden Hall when school is in session and during new student programs. A student who has not satisfied one of these requirements before registering may enroll temporarily in UNIV 000, then drop/add to an appropriate course at the beginning of the semester after taking the MPE and being advised
