Legacy UTPA Degree plans

This web page contains information about the legacy UTPA undergraduate degree plans. These apply to undergraduate students that began a mathematics major or minor as UTPA students. They do not apply to new students that began a Mathematics major or minor as UTRGV students.

The course numbers in these documents are the old course numbers of the UTPA course catalog. This crosswalk guide explains how to convert these into UTRGV course numbers.
