Mathematics Alternatives Table
Each row lists alternative ways to meet a mathematics requirement for admission or course prerequisite (the minimum acceptable grade for each course is indicated in brackets). For example, the requirement 'Level C1 as defined in the Math Alternatives Table' is fulfilled by any of the courses or tests listed on Level C1. In addition, fulfilling a particular Requirement Level also automatically fulfills all of the Requirement Levels lower in the table. For example, the requirement 'Level E1 as defined in the Math Alternatives Table' is fulfilled by any of the courses or tests listed on Levels A1, B1, C1 or D1, as well as E1.
