One of the Honors alternatives to Mathematics 115 may be substituted for Mathematics 115. Advanced placement credits in Mathematics 121 may be substituted for Mathematics 115, but students who scored less than a 4 on the BC Calculus exam are encouraged to elect one of the calculus courses on the placement list before proceeding to economics courses having a Mathematics 115 prerequisite.
