Major Prerequisites
Requirement  UC Berkeley Courses  Alternatives 

Calculus I  Math 1A  Equivalent Advanced Placement, IB, ALevels per Math Department; or equivalent CA Community College course work per Assist.org, or equivalent course work from another 4year college or outofstate community college 
Calculus II  Math 1B  
Multivariable Calculus  Math 53  
Linear Algebra and Differential Equations  Math 54  
Lower Division Statistics  Stat 20 or Data/Stat/CS/Info C8  
Upper Division Statistics  Stat 134 or C140  Stat 135 if B not met in Stat 134 or C140 

Students must earn a minimum 3.2 UC Grade Point Average* and no lower than a C in the following courses:
 Math 1A Calculus (or the Summer version Math N1A)
 Math 1B Calculus II (or the Summer version Math N1B)
 Math 53 Multivariable Calculus (or the Summer version Math N53, or webbased version Math W53)
 Math 54 Linear Algebra and Differential Equations (or the Summer version Math N54)
*Math prerequisite GPA is based solely on math courses taken at UC Berkeley or other UC. Students who have taken ALL FOUR prerequisite courses at nonUC institutions, are still required to take at least one Math course at Berkeley to establish a UC GPA. Students may choose Math 54 (B+ required) or Math 110 (B required). Note: Effective Fall 2019, Math 1A and Math 1B cannot be taken after completing Math 53 and/or Math 54 at UCB to increase the math prerequisite GPA.
If you have completed any of the math prerequisites at a nonUC institution, please look at Frequently Asked Questions.
 Students must earn a minimum C grade in either Stat/CompSci/Info C8, Stat 20 or Stat 28 (effective for freshmen students entering UC Berkeley in Fall 2018 and transfer students entering in Fall 2020).

Students must also earn a B in either Stat 134 (or Stat C140*) or Stat 135, with no more than one course repeated between Stat 134 (or Stat C140) and Stat 135.
*Prerequisites are enforced for Stat C140 (Probability for Data Science); see the course website for details. Due to overlap of course content, students will only receive credit for either Stat 134 or Stat C140.
