Major GPA (All USF courses which are applied to major requirements): 2.0
General Education GPA (All USF courses which are applied to General Education requirements): 2.0
USF GPA: 2.0
Overall GPA: 2.0
A grade of C- or better isrequired for courses in the mathematics major and minor and in the statistics major.
However, C- is not an acceptable grade for any course that is being used as a prerequisite for a follow-on course. For these courses, a grade of C (2.0 grade points) or better is required. Will vary by area.
Note: Some USF courses have higher grade criteria to meet prerequisite knowledge necessary for progression into higher level courses.

Those interested in pursuing advanced degrees in Mathematics may also be interested in the Honors Program.
Optional Honors Program
HONORS PROGRAM IN MATHEMATICS
The program is designed for students who wish to obtain a B.A. degree that will indicate unusual strength in the field of mathematics. Successful completion of the program will be prominently displayed on the student’s diploma and will be recorded on the official USF transcript of the student’s work.
Students are eligible for admission to the program when they:
- have completed MAS 4301 - Elementary Abstract Algebra I ;
- have at least a 3.0 GPA for all college courses; and
- have at least a 3.5 GPA for all Mathematics courses.
Applications are submitted to the Undergraduate Committee in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. The requirements for a B.A. degree in Mathematics with Honors are as follows:
- Completion of the requirements of the major in Mathematics;
- Completion of MAA 4211 - Intermediate Analysis I ;
Completion of MAT 4970 - Mathematics Senior Thesis ;
Completion of eight Mathematics courses at or above the 4000-level;
- At least a 3.0 average for all college courses; and
- At least a 3.5 average for all Mathematics courses.
At least 3 (and usually 6) credit hours of Mathematics Senior Thesis are required. There will be a thesis committee and the thesis will need to be successfully defended.
Research Opportunities - College of Arts and Sciences
Undergraduate students in any degree program are able to participate in undergraduate research. Several options exist to show mentored undergraduate research activity on a student’s official transcript. Those who wish to enroll in an undergraduate research course should consult with their academic advisor to understand how the credit will apply towards the degree requirements. If no credit is needed, students may be eligible to enroll in the 0-credit IDS 4914 course. This course will not impact degree credits or GPA but will show on an official transcript and document the experience. The Office of High Impact Practices and Undergraduate Research is able to assist with further inquiries.
