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.
Students without adequate placement to enroll in MATH 111, MATH 120 or MATH 210G can gain admission to the course by earning a C- or better in CCDM 114 N at an NMSU Community College campus, or in A S 103.
Students wishing to enroll in MATH 121G, MATH 142G, MATH 190GMATH 191G, MATH 235, or STAT 251G must satisfy one of the following:
  1. have passed the stated prerequisite course or an equivalent transfer course with a C- or better
  2. have placed into the course with an adequate ACT Math score or through the Mathematics Placement Examination (MPE), the results of which will be made available to the student’s advisor. The MPE is given daily in Walden Hall when school is in session and during new student orientation programs.
