Mathematics: If you are not exempt from the ELM Exam, you must satisfy the ELM requirement by either passing the ELM Exam or passing the appropriate preparatory math courses. If you do not pass the ELM, you must enroll in your required ELM equivalency course during your first semester at Sacramento State and enroll in the subsequent semester if you are required to take a second course. Your ELM exam score and whether you plan to take MATH 1 or a math course other than MATH 1 for your GE Area B4 will determine the course or course sequence you should take to satisfy the ELM requirement.
After passing the ELM Exam or the appropriate ELM equivalency courses, you may enroll in MATH 1 for the General Education Quantitative Reasoning requirement or take a Mathematics Department Diagnostic Test as a prerequisite to enrollment in other mathematics courses. Contact the Department of Mathematics and Statistics (278-6534) for additional information.
For students planning to take a GE AREA B4 math course other than MATH - Courses in this category are MATH 17, 24, 26A, 26B, 29, 30, 31, 35, STAT 1, 50. Successful completion of a Diagnostic Exam is a prerequisite for these GE math courses. Contact the Department of Mathematics and Statistics for GE math information, (278-6534).
