Programs of Study

The Department of Mathematics at UCCS offers a wide range of courses, degrees, and programs to meet the needs of a diverse constituency in the Pikes Peak Region. The degree programs include:

Center for Excellence in Mathematics

The Center for Excellence in Mathematics, or Math Center, is located in Engineering 233. The center began operation in the fall of 1990 as part of a federally funded Title III initiative known as Project Excel. The Math Center provides drop-in tutoring in mathematics, computer science, physics, statistics, and some engineering courses. In addition, the center provides supplemental instruction, problem sessions, workshops, space for small group study as well as a limited amount of one-on-one tutoring for UCCS students free of charge.  The computers in the Math Center have a variety of mathematical and statistical software for student use. See the website for more information:

Mathematics Academic Policies

Prerequisite Policy

Prerequisites for all 1000-level mathematics courses are directly enforced through the registration and student records systems. In lieu of the prerequisite course, a student may pass the appropriate Math Placement Test for the following courses: MATH 1040, 1050, 1110, 1120, and 1350. For pedagogical and advising purposes, students who take the Math Placement Test are strongly encouraged to do so well before the start of the semester. The Math Placement Test is taken online. See the website for details. For questions about student records, please contact Academic Advising.

Calculator Policy

Calculator usage on exams is limited to a basic scientific calculator with a minimal number of storage registers and no graphing capability.
