GEN 103 and GEN 104 review Algebra content and math study strategies with curriculum specifically designed for entry-level University of Louisville mathematics courses for STEM and non-STEM majors. Non-STEM majors (GEN 103) require MATH 105 only, and STEM majors (GEN 104) require MATH 111 or a MATH course other than MATH 105.

Students receive 1 hour of college credit (elective credit only) for the GEN 103 or GEN 104 course, which meets 2 days a week for 50 minutes sessions.  (Note that students in supplemented sections of GEN 103 are also required to use REACH’s mathematics tutoring services for at least 1 hour per week.)

GEN 103 and GEN 104 are open-ended; students can complete their required course curriculum and demonstrate mathematics competency through Accuplacer testing at any time.

A student who is unable to demonstrate competency in one semester will be required to register again for GEN 103 or GEN 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.

Course components include the following:

GEN 103 and GEN 104 are open-ended; students can complete their required course curriculum and demonstrate mathematics competency through testing at any time. 

Students who are unable to demonstrate competency in one semester will be required to re-enroll in GEN 103 or GEN 104 for a subsequent semester and until they have achieved competency for MATH 105 or their entry-level mathematics course.
