MATH 1414 is a REQUIRED prerequisite for both MATH 2412 and CHEM 1411.

Credit Hours are applied to the core for graduation; however, STEM students transferring to universities must take both the lecture and lab components of the Natural Science Courses.

Students pursuing the 2+2 degree plan with TAMU in Biomedical Sciences through Palo Alto College should take BIOL 1411 and BIOL 1413 to fulfill the Natural Sciences requirement.

Students should check with the university to which they plan to transfer to confirm the upper level math requirement and to ensure that appropriate courses are selected at SPC that will apply to the baccalaureate degree.  Pre-requisite math courses may be required for students to register for these math courses.

Students are encouraged to carefully examine requirements at the transfer institution.  Requirements vary from institution to institution and can change from one year to the next.
