I'd like to better understand my student's options for math classes since she has completed her LNC requirements. Can she take any math she wants at CPCC?


If a student has completed all of her math requirements for LNC graduation purposes, yes they may take math at CPCC. However, there will be specific scores/pre-requisite that you student will need to have before CPCC allows them to take the higher math courses.


For more info on math requirement, it is located under resources, hscounseling, and CPCC Math link. If you have more questions, please contact your student's counselor. Thank you for those questions.
