The Major Pathways Program is an academic advising program in the Academic Success Center (ASC) at UNLV. The ASC, the Lee Business School, Howard R. Hughes College of Engineering, and College of Sciences have created the program to assist students who seek a major in one of these colleges and are pursuing a major that best fits their academic and career goals.
The "pathway" into these colleges is to enter UNLV in the Exploring major, work on completion of the related gateway Math course with a C or better, while taking advantage of Academic Success Center programming to establish a baseline for college success.
Lee Business School requires that students complete Math 124 - College Algebra (or higher) with a minimum grade of C.
College of Engineering and College of Sciences each require their students complete Math 126 - Pre-Calculus I (or higher) with a minimum grade of C.
In order to be eligible for these math courses, students must either satisfy minimum placement scores or enroll in preparatory Math courses. Please refer to the Math Department website for the specific scores/courses.
If your current math test scores are lower than those required for your entering Math course, you have several options for placing into a higher-level math class: participate in UNLV’s preparation program and then take the placement test, take a placement test and earn the minimum scores, or successfully complete preparatory courses.
