ALL-UNIVERSITY CORE MATHEMATICS REQUIREMENT

The All-University Core Curriculum (AUCC) requires that students earn 3 credits in mathematics. These credits may be earned from:

  • the Colorado State University Mathematics Challenge Exam;
  • AP, IB, or CLEP credit;
  • transferring coursework to Colorado State; or
  • satisfactorily completing classes at CSU.

    The AUCC Mathematics Requirement must be completed during the first 60 credits earned toward a degree. Transfer and readmitted students who enter with 60 or more credits must complete this requirement during their first term of enrollment.

    Most students satisfy the mathematics requirement by taking 3 credits from the following courses:

    MATH 101 Math in the Social Sciences ........................................................................................... (3 credits)

    MATH 105 Patterns of Phenomena I.................................................................................................  (3 credits)

    MATH 117 MATH 126 Courses in the PACe Program .................................................................... (1 credit each)


    Any three credits in mathematics will satisfy the AUCC Mathematics Requirement. However, many majors require specific mathematics courses to satisfy degree requirements.

    Academic goals, degree requirements, personal interests, background and transfer credit should influence how a student satisfies the AUCC Mathematics Requirement.
