Note: This course may not be taken for credit concurrently with or after any other 100-level MATH course. Students are allowed to have credit for only one of MATH 102 or MATH 104; students who take MATH 102 and then take MATH 104 will lose credit for MATH 102. This course may be used as an alternative prerequisite for MATH 110, MATH 121, MATH 123, MATH 125, or MATH 176 (clears deficiencies in high school 30-level mathematics courses). Students who score below 60% on the Math Placement Test ( are advised to take MATH 102 to review their basic precalculus skills. MATH 102 may not be included in the courses required in C4 or C6 for Applied Mathematics, Mathematical Physics, Mathematics or Statistics.
