Department Policies:

- Placement in the proper course is of utmost importance to the student and the Department. The ACT Math Subscore or the UNL Math Placement Test is used to place traditional entering freshmen in our entry level college mathematics courses. Consult the departmental course listings for information on minimal ACT Math Subscore requirements for our entry level courses.
- Students who have completed a full year of Calculus in high school may start in Calculus II or Calculus III. If they earn at least a "C" then they will earn 5 or 10 hours credit for the course(s) they skipped.
- CLEP Examination must be taken before completing higher level courses.
- All majors and endorsements must be completed with no grade below a "C".
- Math 090 credit will not count toward any university degrees.
- Students will not be allowed to register and get credit for any 100 level mathematics course after having successfully completed (C or better) another mathematics or statistics course for which the said 100 level course is a prerequisite.
