  • Students planning to transfer to Washington State University or Western Washington University should take BSTEC 130 to satisfy admissions requirements. Please consult an advisor.

****Intermediate Algebra Notes

  • Students intending to transfer to University of Washington must have proof of “Intermediate Algebra proficiency.” This requirement may be satisfied by either completion of two years of high school algebra or by completion of Intermediate Algebra (MATH 097) with a grade of 2.0 or higher. Only the University of Washington retains this Intermediate Algebra requirement. However, all baccalaureate institutions in the state of Washington accepting the DTA (including UW) require successful completion of college level math (100-level or above) or PHIL& 120 (see “Quantitative Analysis/Symbolic Reasoning Skills”). It must be noted that PHIL& 120 and some college level math courses at Edmonds CC have a prerequisite of only Essentials of Intermediate Algebra (MATH 087) with a grade of 2.0 or higher. Thus, one can take a college level math class without satisfying the University of Washington’s Intermediate Algebra proficiency requirement. Consult with an advisor early in your program planning to avoid errors in math course selection.
