Beginning Fall 2019, our department began offering placement into transfer-level courses. Math 100 was created.  Support courses were created for statistics, trigonometry, and college algebra.  These support courses have a course number that is followed by an X for extra support.  

STEM Pathway:  Math 102 (or 102X), Math 104, Math 211, Math 212, Math 213, Math 214, Math 215
Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III, Linear Algebra, and Differential Equations  (STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics)

Business Pathway:  Math 103 (or 103X), Math 240
College Algebra, Calculus for Business and Social Science
Business majors may also need to complete statistics.  Please check with a COC counselor.

Statistics Pathway:  Math 140 (or 140X)
Introductory Statistics

Other Pathways:  Math 100 or Math 130
Liberal Arts Mathematics or Math for Elementary School Teachers

Noncredit math (Tuituion Free Classes)

Did you know that beginning Fall 2022 our department stopped offering below transfer level math classes?  Some topics from our Math 058 (Algebra Preparation) through Math 070 (Intermediate Algebra) classes are now offered through our noncredit program.  

You may enroll in these noncredit math classes concurrently while you are taking a credit level math class.  You may also take these in the Winter or Summer to help you with a Fall or Spring math enrollment.

The sequence of classes for the AS and AST degrees is a sample schedule for two years at COC as a mathematics major. 


This three-minute placement video introduces our new placement policy once AB 705 (Assembly Bill 705) was implemented a few years back.  For additional placement information, please visit the following webpages:
