UW-Superior Mathematics Requirements
UW-Superior Mathematics Course Sequence
Listed below are majors offered at UW-Superior along with the highest level mathematics course required to complete each of them. Typically, a student would start at UW-S in the mathematics course indicated by their (actual) placement exam result and work through mathematics courses to at least complete the highest level course required by the desired major. Of course, it is often the case that many more mathematics courses are taken than this minimum requirement.

In addition to these major requirements, obtaining a degree from UW-S means also that a student must complete certain General Education requirements. In the area of mathematics, the General Catalog for UW-Superior currently reads:
The mathematics requirement is 3 to 5 credits of mathematics at the level of MATH 104 or above.
At UW-S, MATH 104 is Intermediate Algebra and corresponds roughly to Level 2 for the placement exam. Thus, a Level 3 result indicates that the student is beyond this requirement. However, the Gen Ed requirements are in transition and the new demand may more accurately correspond to Level 3. Thus, if these General Education demands are of concern, it is advisable to contact UW-S and inquire about the current status.
