Transfer for Business

There are two business paths depending on whether your transfer institution requires business calculus (Math 12) or the STEM major calculus (Math 1A and beyond).

Most California State UniversitiesBusiness Calculus and Statistics

Most Universities of California & Private InstitutionsSTEM-Based Calculus & Statistics

The road for success is based on completing your courses in the order that is building upon the previous course's content--meaning algebra is needed for precalculus and precalculus for calculus, so take those courses consecutively and enroll in statistics after completion of calculus since it has very little algebra and no precalculus or calculus.  Check assist.org to verify your major and IGETC requirements for transfer.  If you have any advanced placement (AP) scores of 3 or higher in Statistics or Calculus you may have earned a higher placement and  potentially have no need to enroll in additional math courses--to verify, visit the PSME Division.

Business Calculus Pathway

Math 210 Prealgebra Required or placed higher

Math 212 Elementary Algebra Required or placed higher

Math 114 Intermediate Algebra Required or placed higher

Math 41 Precalculus I This is one of two required prerequisites options (Math 41 or Math 11) for business calculus (Math 12) or placed higher.  This course is the best prerequisite for Math 12 preparation.  Students completing Math 41 are better prepared for the precalculus and algebra challenges faced in business calculus than those that complete Math 11 Finite Math.

Math 12 Business Calculus Required or passed the AP Calculus Exam with a score of 3 or better

Math 11 Finite Math only for SDSU Tranfers This course is only required for SDSU transfers and is not recommended as the best prerequisite for Math 12--please read the Math 41 description above.

Math 10 Statistics Required or passed the AP Statistics Exam with a score of 3 or better, see CSU AP link and UC AP link.

 

Calculus Pathway

Math 210 Prealgebra Required or placed higher

Math 212 Elementary Algebra Required or placed higher

Math 41 Precalculus I Required or placed higher

Math 42 Precalculus II Required or placed higher

Math 43 Precalculus III Required or placed higher

Math 1A Calculus I Required or passed AP Calculus (AB) Exam with a score of 3 or better

Math 1B Calculus II Required or passed AP Calculus (BC) Exam with a score of 3 or better

Math 1C Calculus III Some institutions will require this course, check with the institution or if a public California institution, use assist.org to verify major and IGETC requirements for transfer.
