(based on Regents Advisory Committee Recommendations) 

^{1}USG institutions cannot require students to take a particular course from among MATH 1001, MATH 1101, and MATH 1111 as long as they are not STEM majors. No matter which of these math courses nonSTEM students take, it must count toward satisfying Area A2 requirements and it must count toward graduation. However, students in nonSTEM majors should be ADVISED to take the math course most appropriate for their intended majors. Where MATH 1001 or MATH 1101 is the default recommendation for a particular major students with strong math interests and abilities may opt to take MATH 1111, but MOST students should be advised to take MATH 1001 or MATH 1101.
