High-Demand Major–Selection Criteria
All students must meet the following minimum qualifications to be admitted: 
- Overall GPA of 2.75 or higher,
- Passing scores on GACE basic skills test or exemption, 
- Grade of "C" (2.0) or higher in MATH 2250, MATH 2260, MATH 3200 
- Completion of one of the following courses: MATH 2500, MATH 2700MATH 3000  
- Documented completion of at least 30 clock hours of tutoring students in mathematics of grades 6-12 in a structured setting.

All students meeting these requirements will then be ranked using the following formula:
(Grade in MATH 2250 x 5) + (Grade in MATH 2260  x 5) + (Grade in MATH 3200 x 5) + (Grade in MATH 2500 or MATH 3000 or MATH 2700 x 5) + (Overall grade point average x 5). 

A minimum of 57.25 points is required to be considered for admission. Students who have at least 57.25 points will then be rank ordered, and the 25 students having the highest point totals will be admitted to the program each semester.

In the event of a "tie," we will admit 26 students. A student who has been admitted for a given semester and is unable to enroll due to an emergency will automatically be allowed into the next cohort s/he is able to join. Students can reapply as many times as they wish.
