  • Minimum CUM GPA: 2.0
  • Audition/Portfolio: Not applicable


  • Upon transfer, students must declare a major in Mathematics.
  • Math courses taken at QCC in which a D+ grade or lower was earned cannot be counted toward the mathematics major at Queens College.
  • When the receiving college awards transfer credit for either a block of courses or for an entire program rather than for individual courses, it may not be necessary to list individual course equivalencies.
  • It is the responsibility of the incoming transfer student to check the current requirements for the B.A. in Mathematics at Queens College. The student is required to follow the requirements in effect at the time of his or her entrance to Queens College even if they are different from what are found in this agreement.
  • Queens College requires 6-7 credits of additional Pathways classes as part of the College Option, which includes a literature and a language requirement, as well as two Writing Intensive (W) units, with a minimum of one in residency. Writing Units may overlap with other requirements.

Additional Notes:

Active Articulation Agreement Notes: 
The following courses are required of Pure Math majors at Queens College:

  • The following courses are required of Pure Math majors at Queens College:  MATH 151: Calculus/Differentiation and Integration, MATH 152: Calculus/Integration and Infinite Series, MATH 201: Multivariable Calculus, MATH 202: Advanced Calculus, MATH 231: Linear Algebra I, MATH 310 Elementary Real Analysis, MATH 333: Introduction to Algebraic Structures.
  • Additionally, Pure Math majors must select 8 elective mathematics courses.
  • Students at QCC will complete the equivalent of MATH 151 and 152 (MA-441 and 442).  They can also take MA-443 at QCC, which is the equivalent of MATH 201 at QC, and MA-461, which is the equivalent of MATH 231 at QC.
  • QCC also offers courses which would act as some of the 8 electives at QC.  They are:  MA-451 (which is equivalent to MATH 223 at QC), MA-471 (which is equivalent to MATH 220 at QC), MA-481 (which is equivalent to MATH 241 at QC).
  • QCC students can make their transition to QC easier by taking MA-443, MA-451, MA-461, MA-471, and MA-481 at QCC.  Then when students transfer, they need only take 5 of the elective courses at QC.  It may not be possible or desirable to take all of these classes at QCC.  Any major or elective courses for the Pure Math major not taken at QCC must be taken at QC after transfer.
  • *Students are required to take particular courses in some areas of the Common Core that fulfill both general education and major requirements at QCC.  If students do not take the required courses in the Common Core, they will have to take additional credits to complete their degree requirement.
  • **Students must complete MA-441 and all prerequisites for that course.
  • ***Students must complete two-course sequences in at least two different subject areas (Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics). For students following this agreement, one two-course sequence in Physics (PH-301/2, PH-311/12, or PH-421/2) and one in Mathematics (MA-441/2) are recommended.
