To minor in mathematics, a student must satisfactorily complete the following requirements:

  • The equivalents of MATH 1500, MATH 1700 and MATH 2300
  • 9 additional approved credits in math (students not taking MATH 2320 must take all 9 credits at the 3000/4000 level; students taking MATH 2320 need only an additional 6 credits at the 3000/4000 level)
  • All courses completed with grades in C range or higher
  • At least 9 credits used to satisfy the minor requirements taken in residence (College of Arts and Science requirement)

Students that have completed MATH 2300 (or transferable equivalent) can apply for the Minor in Mathematics electronically at It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all requirements of the minor are completed prior to graduation. You can check your progress towards completing the minor by running a degree audit via Students are encouraged to run degree audits at least once a semester to ensure that the courses they have chosen count towards the minor.
