New Mathways • What you need to know

HCC Mathways Project is a systemic approach to improving student success and completion rates through implementation of processes, strategies, and structures built around accelerated mathematics pathways and a supporting student success course, connected to modern programs of study.

Depending on placement testing, MATH 0106 may be required before you can embark on the Mathways outlined below. There may be some variations to these Mathways. Please consult your specific degree plan.
