1 Many universities require MTH 151 or higher while others require MTH 163 or MTH 166 or higher, often including a statistics course for majors in the social sciences. It is, therefore, important that students confer with a counselor to determine the appropriate mathematics courses for their intended transfer university. Credit will not be awarded for both MTH 173 and MTH 271. Credit will not be awarded for both MTH 174 and MTH 272.
