“Right Sizing” Mathematics Admission Requirements

Have you had experience trying to “right size” the mathematics admission requirements for your college program? Are you looking to set or change your math admission requirements? There is always a balance and “tension” among student success, access to programs and mathematics skill sets unique to each program. Come hear the experiences of College faculty, program coordinators and administrators who have set mathematics admission requirements for their programs. Break out into working sessions to explore all the considerations of setting your math admission requirements. Come away with a plan for your program!
