Some important documents and forms about courses:

  • Course Equivalency Form - Students who took major (math) and support courses (such as physics, computer science, other science, economics) from other institutions should fill out this form to your advisor when you meet with him or her. For reference, here are the Course Equivalencies sorted by school.
  • Prerequisite Map - This shows the relationships between the math courses.

Description of courses

See Math Course Descriptions (in SJSU Catalog) for descriptions of recurring courses. For planning ahead, see Future Course Offerings (external Google sheet)NOTE: For real-time course listings, including textbook information, visit, then go to "Class Search." All classes with the STAT prefix are taught by the Psychology Department.

Calculus is one of the most important services the Math Department provides to the university. Please see the dedicated Calculus tabs for more information, dates, etc.

Repeating a lower division Math Class more than twice

At the request of colleagues in Physics and Engineering, the Math Department voted on a new policy for students registering in a lower division math course for the third (or more) time. There is a special form entitled Repeating a Course for More Than Two Times Petition(pdf) which the instructor must sign for the student to be allowed to register in a course for the third (or more) time. It is highly advised that the third time be taken during the summer.
