Students applying for admission to the AMS major should have completed with the following courses with a minimum GPA of 2.75:
- ENGL 102 or ENGL 105 (unless the student has received a waiver or, for transfer students, an equivalent course)
- AMS 100 or AMS 101
- AMS 110 or AMS 112
When to Apply
Students are encouraged to apply for the major during the semester in which admission requirements will be completed. This is normally no later than 60 hours. For transfer students, application to the major is normally during the initial term at KU. Application to this major after completion of 60 hours, or the initial term for transfer students, will likely delay graduation.
