MATH 0332 is a corequisite support course for MATH 1332  .  Students should be aware that sections of these courses are LINKED. Therefore, developmental math students who enroll in Math 0332 must also enroll in the linked section of Math 1332 (in the same semester). Developmental students must maintain satisfactory attendance in BOTH Math 0332 and Math 1332.  If a developmental student withdraws or drops from one course in the corequisite pair, then he/she will be dropped from the other linked course.

Corequisite courses must be taken during the same semester.
