# GE B4 Fulfilled

- Placement Criteria Overview
- Review multiple measures for non-STEM majors (PDF) for how your placement level was determined.
- Review multiple measures for STEM majors (PDF) for how your placement level was determined.

- Placement Criteria
Students in who have met one of the following criteria have fulfilled the GE B4 requirement

Additional math courses may still be required by your major program- see Advising and Majors in STEM below and the Math for My Major page

**Advanced Placement (AP) Test Score:**- 3 or 4: AP Calculus AB, BC, or AB Subscore on BC exam
- Credit for MATH 119 Precalculus (GE B4 Math)

- 5: AP Calculus AB or AB Subscore on BC exam
- Credit for MATH 120 Analytic Geometry & Calculus I (GE B4 Math)

- 5: AP Calculus BC
- Credit for MATH 121 Analytic Geometry & Calculus II (GE B4 Math)

- 3 or above: AP Statistics
- Credit for MATH 105 Introduction to Statistics (GE B4 Math)

- 3 or above: AP Computer Science Principles
- Credit for CSCI 101 Introduction to Computer Science (GE B4 Math)

**College Transfer Coursework:**- Completed college course with a grade of C- or better that satisfies the CSU GE Area B4 math/QR requirement

**International Baccalaureate (IB) Test Score:**- 4 or above on Math Higher Level (HL) (GE B4 Math)

**College Level Examination Program (CLEP) Score:**- 50 or above in: Calculus, College Algebra, College Algebra-Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, or Trigonometry (GE B4 Math)

- 3 or 4: AP Calculus AB, BC, or AB Subscore on BC exam
- Advising
- You have earned college credit for the GE Area B4 Mathematics/Quantitative Reasoning requirement from a transferable math course or AP/IB/CLEP test credit.
- Review Math for My Major to determine courses for your program. If your major does not specify a GE B4, you have completed graduation requirement.
- If your major requires a math course that you do not have credit for you, it is likely still required. Consult with your major advisor for further assistance or course substitution requests.

- Enrollment Information
- You are able to enroll in courses that require "GE Math Ready" or "Quantitative Reasoning Ready" as a prerequisite.
- You will not see a notice in your Student Center related to math placement/quantitative reasoning. View what Chico State has on file to complete your GE B4 credit by logging into your Student Center. Under the "Academic Progress" section, click on
**Transfer Credit Report**to see what course/test credit is being used to satisfy the GE Area B4 requirement. Additionally, when the course is posted, it will clear the relevant requirements in your**Degree Progress Report**.*Note: if a course/test does not reflect in this area, it may still be in the process of posting to your transfer credit report.* - Per CSU Supportive Pathways for First-Year Students, students are required to enroll in
**GE A2**& B4**courses within their first year**(if not already completed).

- Majors in STEM
- For STEM (math-intensive) majors, you may still need to complete ALEKS PPL to determine readiness for calculus (or precalculus).
- The default course to start with in the STEM pathway is MATH 118 Trigonometry. To enroll in a higher-level math course such as MATH 119 Precalculus, MATH 120 Analytic Geometry & Calculus I, or MATH 109 Survey of Calculus, you must either have transferable credit, or complete the ALEKS PPL assessment process to demonstrate readiness.
*Example: you receive credit for MATH 105 Statistics from an AP Statistics exam to meet the GE B4 Math in General Education. However, you are pursuing Mechanical Engineering (STEM) and MATH 120 Analytic Geometry & Calculus is the first math course required in your major. The completion of MATH 105 Statistics does not determine readiness for MATH 120. Therefore, ALEKS PPL would be used to assess readiness for MATH 120 (or MATH 119 Precalculus).*- High school experience in trigonometry, math analysis, precalculus, and/or calculus is beneficial for building your math foundation. However, ALEKS PPL will assess your mastery of concepts and provide ways to study and prepare for appropriate course(s) if needed.
