Entry Level Mathematics (ELM) All students must take the Entry-Level Math Test prior to enrollment or a hold will be placed on all course registration. Students will not be allowed to enroll in any Mathematics coursework unless they have satisfied the ELM requirement. If the student's ELM score is below the minimum required for General Education level Mathematics coursework, the student must enroll in the appropriate preparatory courses the first quarter of their enrollment.
The entry level mathematics courses are Math 105 (College Algebra), Math 106 (Trigonometry), Math 112 (Preparation for Calculus), Math 114 (Analytic Geometry and Calculus I), Math 120 (Calculus for the Life Sciences), Math 125 (Introductory Calculus for Business), Math 130 (Technical Calculus I), Math 191 (Survey of Mathematics), and Stat 120 (Statistics with Applications).
In order to enroll in one of these courses, students must satisfy BOTH the California State University System's Entry Level Mathematics (ELM) requirement AND the course prerequisites established by the Cal Poly Pomona Mathematics Department.
