GEN 103/104


GEN103 and GEN104 review Algebra content and math study strategies with curriculum specifically designed for entry-level University of Louisville mathematics courses for non-STEM majors (GEN103 for the MATH 105 and GEN104 for MATH 111 or a MATH course other than MATH 105).

Students receive 1 hour of college credit (elective credit only) for GEN103 or 104.

GEN103 and GEN104 meet 2 days a week for 50 minutes sessions..

Course components include the following:

  • Computer-aided nstruction based on individual need.
  • Topics required for entry-level mathematics courses.
  • Both face-to-face and e-mail communication.
  • Homework, both online with computer software and in a printed course pack.
  • Mini-lectures and peer group work.

  • GEN103 and GEN104 are open-ended; students can complete their required course curriculum and demonstrate mathematics competency through COMPASS testing at any time.
  • A student who is unable to demonstrate competency in one semester will be required to register again for GEN103 or 104 for a subsequent semester and until the student has achieved the competency.
  • Students can test for possible placement into entry-level math courses throughout the semester.

For more information about GEN103, GEN104, and COMPASS testing, please see the GEN 103 Flyer and the GEN 104 Flyer.
