At most 12 of the required credit hours can be outside mathematics. Students must petition and obtain the approval of the graduate committee in order to register for courses outside the department.

Math 6995, Reading and Research (independent study), can be taken only by petition to, and with the approval of, the graduate committee.

Subject to the approval of the graduate committee (requested via petition) and the agreement of the instructor, mathematics graduate students may take the following undergraduate courses for graduate credit: Math 3710, 3720, 3730, 3740, 3613, 3632, 4239, 4240, 3848 and 4981.
