USC Math Student Self-Evaluation/Declaration of Math Proficiency by MAP Students

All USC MAP for Engineering and Computing students will be required to complete a Student Self-Evaluation/Declaration of Math Proficiency. This is meant to confirm that students coming into USC MAP for Engineering and Computing have the appropriate math proficiency levels or equivalent demonstrated proficiency levels required for the Engineering degree programs listed below:

  • Civil Engineering (ME)/(MS, thesis option): Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III; and Differential Equations.
  • Aerospace Engineering (ME)/(MS, thesis option): Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III; and Differential Equations.
  • Biomedical Engineering (ME)/(MS, thesis option): Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III; and Differential Equations.
  • Electrical Engineering (ME)/(MS, thesis option): Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III; and Differential Equations.
  • Mechanical Engineering (ME)/(MS, thesis option): Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III; and Differential Equations.
  • Chemical Engineering (ME)/(MS, thesis option): Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III; Differential Equations; and Linear Algebra.
  • Software Engineering (MS) (Non-thesis option): Calculus I, Calculus II; and Discrete Mathematics.
  • Engineering Management, (MS) (Non-thesis option), (Direct Master’s Accelerator Only): Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III.

If you are applying for the Civil Engineering (ME)/(MS, thesis option), Aerospace Engineering (ME)/(MS, thesis option), Biomedical Engineering (ME)/(MS, thesis option), Electrical Engineering (ME)/(MS, thesis option), Mechanical Engineering (ME)/(MS, thesis option) you must complete the Math Self-Evaluation that covers Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III; and Differential Equations. Upon completing the Math Self-Evaluation, and reviewing your results, it is your decision to continue to the Declaration of Math Proficiency to certify that you have the equivalent demonstrated proficiency in math that corresponds to your intended degree program. You will not be eligible for admission into that MAP degree program if you do not check the box on the Declaration portion of the application in the item called the Declaration of Math Proficiency.

If you are applying to the Chemical Engineering (ME)/(MS, thesis option) you must complete the Math Self-Evaluation that covers Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III;  Differential Equations; and Linear Algebra. Upon completing the Math Self-Evaluation, and reviewing your results, it is your decision to continue to the Declaration of Math Proficiency to certify that you have the equivalent demonstrated proficiency in math that corresponds to your intended degree program. You will not be eligible for admission into that MAP degree program if you do not check the box on the Declaration portion of the application in the item called the Declaration of Math Proficiency.
