Math Milestones

Math Milestones will be entered into student records as follows:

Math Milestone

Courses students can register in


Math 14000, Math 15000/15200, Math 16000, Stat 21200, Stat 21300


Math 10400, Stat 11300, Math 12400, Math 12550, Math 12500 (for newly accepted transfer studentes only)


Math 10100

101EN Math 101EN (Math 101 course plus online immersion workshop)


Math Milestones authorize students to take the math courses listed above.  Students can appeal their Math Milestone by taking a math placement test.  Students should take the math placement test long before they register.

Who Doesn’t Need a Math Milestone?

There are two math courses with no prerequisites that can be used to satisfy the Hunter College Core Requirement in Math and Quantitative Reasoning (MQR Core) without taking the math placement test:

Math 10000 Basic Structures of Mathematics, 3 credits, 3 hours

Math 10200 Mathematics and Everyday Life, 3 credits, 3 hours

All other mathematics and statistics courses have prerequisites that can be satisfied by an appropriate Math Milestone.

For entering freshmen, a score of 4 or higher on an AP Calculus AB or Calculus BC Test is equivalent to Math Milestone LEVEL2. Students who score a 4 or higher will earn credit for calculus. Students, who have taken an AP Calculus AB or Calculus BC Test but do not yet know their score, need to make application for a Math Milestone to establish their prerequisite structure.

Transfer students need to officially establish course equivalency for all prerequisite mathematics and statistics courses required by the courses they need to take.

Although CLEP exams are not given credit, they can be used to establish equivalency with prerequisites (see a math advisor for details if you have taken a CLEP math exam).

For most students, Math Milestones will be on target. However, if you have reason to believe the results do not reflect your background and history of achievements in mathematics, you can take the math placement test.
