1Students should confirm math requirement at four-year transfer institution. Although a math sequence fulfills the requirements for an NRCC program, it may not fulfill the math requirement for the student's intended major at a four-year institution. Students who plan to transfer need to determine the four-year institution's math requirement prior to course selection. General transfer information is available at www.nr.edu/transfer.
Mathematics Sequences: The Mathematics requirement may be selected from the following sequences.
MTH 151-MTH 152, Mathematics for The Liberal Arts I & II
MTH 151-MTH 157, Mathematics for The Liberal Arts I & Elementary Statistics
MTH 152-MTH 157, Mathematics for The Liberal Arts II & Elementary Statistics
MTH 157-MTH 158, Elementary Statistics & College Algebra
