"Can I take Calculus I without taking MATH 1112 or MATH 1113?"

NO! Unless you are placed into Calculus 1 through the MAPT test, you will have to take MATH 1112 (Trigonometry) or MATH 1113 (Precalculus). After successful completion of MATH 1112 or 1113 you can register for MATH 1190 (Calculus I).

 

I would like to get a minor in MATH. Where can I find some information?

Check this webpage. Also, here is more info on Math classes (when the classes are offered) in this document.

 

Is there any way to take a class with it's prerequisite in the same semester?

This is up to the Professor teaching that class and whether he/she can allow you to register although you still have not taken the prerequisite class. Email him/her and ask. In most cases this is not possible, but in some cases it can be done.

 

How can I raise the limit of my Credit Hours (take more classes)?

If you need to raise the limit of your Credit Hours, please see this Overload Request Form. If your GPA is less than 3.5, you will have to get the Chair's approval. The form can be emailed to the Registrar's Office.

 

In Owl Express under HOPE Eligibility, it says I am "Below Required GPA" and currently would not get HOPE for the coming semester. Whom do I have to contact about this issue? I know I am eligible.
