Jared’s Answer

Having multiple family members that attend college with a study in the medical field, there were minimal math courses they took. The important area to focus will be in biology, health or human services, and technology. Some math courses are great to have as math will always play a factor in life and what we do, but don’t over request math as it may delay or impact your credits needed or earned for your medical studies.

Talk to to a student advisor or counselor
