                                  Important notes about this MSU major

      Select Math Elective* courses from: MTH 503, MTH 536 (spring only), MTH 540 and MTH 567.
      There is a 125-hour requirement for graduation. For this 2 + 2 plan to work, a student needs to
       transfer at least 67 credit hours. On the other hand, this 2 + 2 plan is very tight and students are
       recommended to plan for another semester at MSU.
       MSU-West Plains students maintaining continuous enrollment under this agreement will be afforded
       the same treatment and protection as native college or university students enrolled in this major
       under a specific catalog year.
      Please refer to Secondary Education Requirements in the MSU-Springfield Undergraduate
       Catalog at for additional
       information on Admission to Teacher Education Requirements.
      This information is provided as a guide. Students are required to fulfill MSU-Springfield graduation
       requirements to receive a degree and should consult their MSU-Springfield advisor and
       undergraduate catalog for details, including the policy under which a transfer student who remains
       continuously enrolled may follow graduation requirements in effect when the student first enrolled
       at their transfer institution. If state certification requirements change during continuous enrollment,
       education majors (MSU-Springfield native students and transfer students) are required to follow the
       new changes/guidelines.
