Footnote:
1 Students should confirm math requirement at four-year transfer institution. Although a math sequence fulfills the requirements for an NRCC program, it may not fulfill the math requirement for the student's intended major at a four-year institution. Students who plan to transfer need to determine the four year institution's math requirement prior to course selection. Students should take MTH 174 or MTH 272 if planning to transfer to Radford University's Computer Science and Technology degree Computer Science or Networks concentrations.

Mathematics Sequences: The Mathematics requirement may be selected from the following sequences.

  • MTH 157-MTH 163 --- Elementary Statistics & Precalculus I
  • MTH 163-MTH 240 --- Precalculus I & Statistics
  • MTH 163-MTH 271 --- Precalculus I & Applied Calculus I
  • MTH 166-MTH 240 --- Precalculus with Trigonometry & Statistics 
  • MTH 271-MTh 272 --- Applied Calculus I & II
  • MTH 166-MTH 173 --- Precalculus with Trigonometry & Calculus with Analytic Geometry I 
  • MTH 173-MTH 174 --- Calculus with Analytic Geometry I & II 
2 Students may choose an IT elective and should determine transfer institution's requirements prior to selection of IT electives. For more details on Radford University CS or IT degree requirements see RU IT Advising Guides athttp://www.radford.edu/content/csat/home/advising/progress-sheets/information-technology.html
3Students may choose from college approved Humanities/Fine Arts electives.
4 The Natural Science requirements may be selected from the following: BIO 101-102; CHM 111-112; PHY 201-202.
5 Students may choose from college approved Social Science electives.
