What is the Introductory Mathematics Requirement?

The introductory mathematics requirement refers to a student’s algebra proficiency (Math 100). The Math 100 course (which has a required Math 100L lab component) at Chapman satisfies this requirement. In the absence of any waivers, test scores, or qualifying transfer courses that satisfy the requirement, a student must successfully complete Math 100 in the first semester in order to continue studies at Chapman.
