Three courses are designated as Foundational Math. They have no prerequisites.

Students may satisfy the Foundational Math requirement by establishing competency through one of the following pathways:

- A score of 46 or higher on our math placement test ALEKS PPL will satisfy the Foundational Math requirement of the REAL Curriculum via competency. However, several majors require MATH 121, MATH 125, or higher MATH course that has MATH 125 as a prerequisite. Some programs that require MATH 125 will accept an ALEKS PPL score of 61 or higher in place of credit for MATH 125.
- Transfer credit for one of the following without also having transfer credit for one
of the above Foundational Math courses will establish Foundational Math competency
at the MATH 125 level.
- MATH 126 Business Calculus
- MATH 138 Precalculus II
- MATH 168 Calculus I with Integrated Precalculus I
- MATH 171 Calculus and Analytic Geometry I
- Other courses approved by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics
