Prerequisite(s): MATH 0314 (P) requires either that a student has passed MATH 0332  or MATH 0332   (P)  with a “C” or better OR TSIA Math Score 336-349 with Intermediate Algebra score 4-15 OR an equivalent score on a Placement Exam.

Corequisite(s): This course (MATH 0314) is a corequisite support course for MATH 1314  .  Students should be aware that sections of these courses are LINKED. Therefore, developmental math students who enroll in Math 0314 must also enroll in the linked section of Math 1314 (in the same semester).

Developmental students must maintain satisfactory attendance in BOTH MATH 0314 and MATH 1314.  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.
