Mathematics Education (7–12, B.S.)

Admission Requirements

SUNY has a standard admissions requirement of a 3.0 GPA for entry into an educator preparation program at the undergraduate or graduate level or a rank in the top 30th percentile of the high school class for entry into an undergraduate educator preparation program as a first-year student.

For first-year students, four years of college preparatory mathematics is recommended; top 30th percentile or an 85% high school average; submission of ACT or SAT score.

Transfer students with a 3.0 GPA from either their last college or the combined average of all previous colleges, whichever is higher, will be admitted directly into Mathematics Education (BS-AS MTS).

Students who do not meet admissions requirements will be admitted into the Mathematics (BA-AS MAT) major.
