Prince George's Community College


Math course(s) required for various majors


PGCC (as most colleges) has a number of entry-level college-credit mathematics courses.
Not all of them will transfer to all schools and count in all degree programs.

Our Mathematics flow chart provides quite a lot of information about this.

Also, you should consult the degree plan you wish to follow. PGCC degree plans are listed in our catalog. If you are undecided about your major, we suggest that you think of several degree plans that you might be interested in and look at the requirements for all of them. In this case, it would make sense to concentrate most of your efforts on taking courses that count in several of these plans. (Of course, it is a good idea to take a few of the more specialized courses so that you can determine which field is more interesting to you.)

If your educational goal will require a four-year degree, it would be a good idea to look at the degree requirements of at least two four-year schools in which you are most interested.

When determining whether a specific course will transfer to another college and count in a specific degree plan, the only information that you should rely upon is given by the college that will be accepting the course. So, if you want to determine whether an PGCC course will transfer to UM Maryland, you must ask at UM Maryland.

PGCC does make an effort to stay informed about which of our courses will transfer to which four-year colleges in our area. Each year, PGCC receives information from various colleges and prints that in our catalog. (Find it under "General Information" and then "Transfer of Credit" from the PGCC catalog.) Looking at the lists here SHOULD NOT replace checking with the four-year college about what will count in your proposed major.

Feel free to consult with a mathematics advisor if you have questions or would like to discuss various options.
