Students planning to major in mathematics are interested in logic, critical thinking, and problem-solving. They have a love for numbers, data, and algorithms. They are trained to think deeply about real-world problems and to solve them using numerical, graphical, symbolic and/or analytical approaches.

Students in the mathematics program earn the Associate in Science degree, which prepares them for transfer to a four-year program. If students follow the correct transfer path, they enter transfer partner universities as a junior. Mathematics courses are available in-person (day and evening) and online. Most students take a combination of in-person and online or hybrid courses to complete their mathematics studies.

The minimum time to complete the Associate of Science degree is four full-time (15-16 credit hours) semesters for students who have no pre-existing college credit.

Currently, the total program cost for an Associate of Science degree for mathematics students is approximately $5,288. This includes tuition and course fees for all required courses but does not include the cost of any developmental prerequisite courses. Books and course fees are also not included in this estimate. However, to assist our students, many mathematics courses utilize Open Educational Resources(OER) and/or low cost textbooks to minimize extra costs.
