In addition to MAT 151 and 152, some senior institutions require MAT 251 as a prerequisite for junior-level chemistry and mathematics courses.
Students must complete at least one IAI approved math course. Science requirements include at least one IAI life science and one IAI physical science, and one of those must be a lab science. Additional math and/or science courses are needed to complete general education requirements for the AA/AS degrees.
