This is to reinforce that a Forest Academy is required for each semester students are enrolled full time (Undergraduate AND Graduate programs.) We will update and adjust the FOR listings as semesters go by.

There are three different Math requirements:
1. General Education Math Requirement (Math 153 or higher)
ALL undergraduate students must complete the General Education math requirement of Math 153 Intermediate Algebra, or higher. (This requirement is also termed “Math Distribution Requirement.)
Students CANNOT take a math assessment and place out of this requirement. Students CAN transfer-in credit (approved by Anne Dow) or complete Math 153 or higher at MUM to meet this requirement.
Students whose major does not require Math can take MATH 200 or MATH 266. These courses are generally easier and more enjoyable for students with little to no math aptitude.
Students whose major requires Math should take the Math Review course appropriate to their level.
2. Majors’ specific Math requirements Students CANNOT transfer-in credit to satisfy their Major’s math requirement. They CAN place out of it if they pass that level in a Math Placement Assessment. Otherwise, they will have to take the required Math course at MUM.
3. Prerequisite Math for a major’s course Again, Students CANNOT transfer-in credit to satisfy a prerequisite Math course. They must either take the Placement Assessment and place out of the prerequisite math level, or take the required prerequisite math course at MUM.
NOTE: All undergraduate students should take the Math Placement test. Students can study up and try to place higher at a later date. Refer them to mum.edu/mathplacement for more information and practice tests.
A math flowchart is included in your advising handbook.
