A student may be exempt from STS 110 and/or MTH 151 by demonstrating proficiency.

Once a student has received credit, including transfer credit for a course, credit may not be received for any course with material that is equivalent to it or is a prerequisite for it without permission of the mathematics department.

All graduating mathematics majors are required to complete a senior portfolio of their work. This portfolio will include a compilation of their work across their four years of mathematical study at Elon; therefore, students should be mindful of this requirement as they complete work for all their courses and be sure to retain electronic copies of work that they may want to include in their portfolio in their senior year.

Total Credit Hours: 38-40
