The Science & Mathematics Division is a group of educators and scholars dedicated to helping students develop a strong understanding of the natural world and how this knowledge can be used and applied. Whether it is through developing or honing mathematical skill, building an awareness of the physical laws that govern the behavior of energy and matter, or helping to understand the mechanisms of life, the division strives to provide students with the knowledge and skills to be successful in a range of fields.

Our students learn through traditional and non-traditional educational experiences, such as: classes; lab exercises; hybrid, online, and self-paced learning environments; seminars; workshops; and research internships. The Division hopes to impart to our students the ability and skill to use their knowledge to enrich themselves, others, and the natural world.

If you have an issue requiring the Dean’s attention, including waiver requests, please email us with your contact information and as much information about your situation as possible, including documentation if applicable.

We will respond as quickly as possible.

Please note that the Dean does not waive prerequisite requirements without evidence of either completion of equivalent college-level work or testing results.

  • For students who require, but have not completed, the Biological Principles I prerequisite, attempting the Biology Challenge Exam
  • Students who do not meet math prerequisites may attempt (or re-attempt once per semester) Accuplacer testing, also at Testing & Assessment.
