In addition to the University's subject requirements for admission, take a half-year of trigonometry and, if possible, an introduction to analytical geometry and calculus. Physics also is strongly recommended because many of the most important applications of mathematics are to physics. Three years of a language other than English-- preferably French, German, or Russian--also are recommended.
Specific information on Advanced Placement credit may be obtained in the UCI General Catalogue. You can find more admissions information here.

If you plan to transfer to UCI in your junior year and major in Mathematics, try to take the courses listed below. Completing them prior to transfer will strengthen your preparation, allow you to keep pace with junior-level UCI students, enable you to enroll in the upper- division courses you will need at UCI, and assist you in earning your bachelor's degree in a timely manner.
*One year of calculus
*One year of vector calculus/linear algebra/differentialequations
*One year of fundamental (calculus-based) physics or general chemistry
*One year of approved lower-division writing
*One course in either computer science or computational methods, including exposure to a higher-level programming language
Also recommended for students planning to pursue graduate study in mathematics:
*One year of college-level language other than English (preferably French, German, or Russian)
To ensure that you are enrolled in the appropriate courses, work closely with your college counselor or counselors in the Physical Sciences Student Affairs office. Also check out UCI's transfer counseling service here.
