The Utah State Office of Education awards four endorsement levels in mathematics for those who fulfill requirements for the appropriate Utah teaching license.
Westminster College School of Education recommends to the Utah State Office of Education that, based on the degrees and licensing program completed, the following levels of endorsement be awarded:
Proper placement in mathematics is critical, especially for students registering for a first collegelevel mathematics course. Information about placement in the beginning courses (MATH 085  MATH 105) is contained in the Undergraduate Degree Requirements section of this catalog. Placement testing through the START Center may be helpful in determining proper placement.
For mathematics courses listing a MATH 105 prerequisite, that requirement
may be satisfied in a variety of ways as described in the Undergraduate
Degree Requirements section of this catalog. A member of the Mathematics
faculty should be consulted for questions about mathematics placement.
Students receiving scores of 3, 4, or 5 on one of the calculus advanced
placement examinations receive the following Westminster credit:
