To earn a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in mathematics, a student must pass the mathematics senior exit exam and earn a grade of “C” or better in all of the courses listed under “Major Program Requirements,” “Required Cognate Concentration or Minor,” and “Other Program Requirements.” A lesser grade in any of these courses must be replaced before the Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in mathematics will be granted. In addition, lesser grades in any of these courses preclude taking subsequent courses for which the deficient courses are prerequisite.

IV. Acceptance into the Teacher Education Program and the Student Teaching

Teacher Education Program: Students pursuing academic programs that lead to teacher licensure must be accepted into the teacher education program by the end of their sophomore year.
Student Teaching: All preservice teachers must obtain admission to student teaching. 

To earn a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in mathematics for secondary education, a student must pass the mathematics senior exit exam and earn a grade of “C” or better in all of the courses listed under “Broadfield Major Program Requirements,” “Professional Education Requirements,” and “Other Program Requirements.”A lesser grade in any of these courses must be replaced before the Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in mathematics for secondary education will be granted. In addition, lesser grades in any of these courses preclude taking subsequent courses for which the deficient courses are prerequisite
Note:
1. All secondary education students must consult both with the Department of Education: Health, Physical, and Teacher and the Department of Mathematics, Engineering, and Computer Science.
2. All Mathematics for Secondary Education students must meet the following requirements: 1) earn a garde of "C" or better in all Professional Education Requirements, Major Program Requirements, and Other Program Requirements; 2) earn a minimum of 2.5 cumulative grade point average, and 3) earn a minimum 2.65 grade point average in Major Program Requirements, Other Program Requirements, and Professional Education Requirements.
