Important Points
  • The transfer path applies to B.A. programs in economics. B.S. programs in economics may have additional requirements.
  • Calculus I is not required at all SUNY transfer colleges, but it is the minimum level of mathematics to be well positioned to finish with an additional two years of study at many SUNY transfer colleges such as Binghamton University and the University at Buffalo. Check with your advisor to determine if Calculus I is essential at your intended transfer campus.
  • MAT 1540: Elementary Statistics is recommended.
