Math Course Placement

What Math Course Should I Take First?

Southeastern has multiple math pathways for students depending upon their career path. To decide which math pathway is appropriate for you, decide if your major falls into a STEM field (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Kinesiology, Nursing, or Psychology) or if it is non-STEM field (all other majors):
