Math Code Information

Effective Fall, 1998, all students enrolling at any CSU campus must have a math placement code of at least 40 by the completion of their first year of study.

Notes about Math Codes

If your math code is... then...
00 you are not eligible to register, you must take ELM before registering. Go to the Testing Center.
01 you are ELM exempt (by self-report) pending verifying documents.
02 you need to take ELM before enrolling in a Math course with a specific proficiency prior to enrollment.
03 you are ELM exempt (by unofficial document) pending official documents.
04 you have taken the ELM and an appropriate approved non-HSU remedial course is in progress.
05 your ELM Test Score is pending.
10 you are eligible to take Math 40.
20 you are eligible to take Math 40 or 42.
At least 30 you are eligible to take Math 44, 103I; BA 250; Chem 105, 107; or Phyx 105.
At least 40 you are eligible to take Math 103, 104, 106, 108, 115; Stat 106, 108; BA 230 or Chem 109.
At least 45 you may take Math 115, 308B and 308C and have completed HSU GE math.
At least 47 you may take Math 115 and have completed transfer GE math.
At least 50 you are eligible to take Math 105, 109; CS 111; Biom 122; or Phyx 106.
At least 65 you are eligible to take Math 110 or higher and have completed Math 105 or 109 at HSU.
At least 67 you are eligible to take Math 110 or higher and have completed transfer Calculus I.

Notes

In general, a student with a math code of X can take any course requiring a math code of Y where Y is less than X. Thus a student with a math code of 45 can take any course requiring a math code of 40.

If the student receives a grade of SP in Math 42, the student is restricted in his/her registration for a math course to Math 44, or Math 43/Math 103I.

Regarding Math Placement through ALEKS:

This year, the HSU Mathematics Department is offering all HOP students the opportunity to raise their Math Code by taking an HSU Math Placement Exam using ALEKS or the HSU Math Diagnostic Placement Test. Please visit HSU Math Placement to learn more about increasing your Math Code before the Fall semester begins.
