Mathematics students may apply to the program after completion of a minimum of 75 eligible undergraduate semester hours and can begin taking graduate courses after completion of a minimum of 90 eligible undergraduate semester hours (120 semester hours are required for the Mathematics, BA or Mathematics, BS). Up to 12 semester hours of graduate courses may be counted towards completion of both the bachelor of arts (BA) or bachelor of science (BS) and the master of arts (MA) degrees. The minimum GPA at the time of admission and entry to the program is 3.5 in mathematics courses and 3.0 overall.
