Math Placement Level 7
There are three different pathways to the math course required for your academic goal. Two of these pathways, Quantitative Reasoning and STEM, are intended for students planning to transfer to a four-year institution and the third is for those in Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs.
The Quantitative Reasoning path is for students whose academic goal is a Bachelor’s degree in fields such as Music, Psychology, Art, History, Nursing and others. If you are on this path, Math Level 7 places you into MTH 098.
The STEM path is for students whose academic goal is a Bachelor’s degree in fields such as Engineering, Computer Science, Business, Biology, and others. If you are on this path, Math Level 7 places you into MTH 060.
The CTE path is for students who plan to complete their degree or certificate at COCC
in a program such as Automotive, GIS, Medical Assisting, Welding, and others. More
information on CTE programs is found here. If you are on this path, Math Level 7 placement means you are eligible to take a
variety of courses and your choice depends on the specific CTE program.
Your advisor will help you determine the correct path and course for your academic goal. More information on the complete paths is available here: Math Course Flow 2020-21
