Application Requirements

Students in most majors may pursue one or more minors and, upon successful completion of the prescribed course work, have that accomplishment officially recognized on the ASU transcript at graduation if the college or department of the minor officially certifies, through established verification procedures, that all requirements for the minor have been met and the college (and, in certain colleges, the department) of the student's major allows the official recognition of the minor.

A student wishing to pursue a specific minor should consult an academic advisor in the unit offering that minor to ensure that an appropriate set of courses is taken. The student should also consult with an academic advisor in the college or department of his or her major to make sure the college or department of the major allows the recognition of the minor.

Note: Certain major and minor combinations may be deemed inappropriate either by the college or department of the major or minor. Courses taken as part of a minor may not count toward both the major degree and the minor. Contact the department for more information.

Admission Requirements
The minor in mathematics consists of a minimum of 18 credit hours. Required courses are as follows, for a total of nine to 11 hours:

MAT 271 Calculus with Analytic Geometry II, MA (4) or MAT 266 Calculus for Engineers II, MA (3)
MAT 272 Calculus with Analytic Geometry III, MA (4) or MAT 267 Calculus for Engineers III, MA (3)
MAT 342 Linear Algebra (3) or MAT 343 Applied Linear Algebra (3)

Electives must be upper-division courses in mathematics (MAT) or statistics and probability (STP). Students may not apply MAT 411 or 485 or a course not offered at ASU to the minor, unless otherwise approved by a department advisor.

All students are required to meet general university admission requirements.
