How much Math do I need to have taken to be eligible for this degree?

This degree is math-intensive and students should be ready to take Calculus 1 during their first semester of enrollment. 

With the exception of the first ATMO course, students must have a strong background in math and physics before taking any of the major ATMO courses.

I don’t have an Associate’s of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Meteorology or Weather, but I have transfer credits in Meteorology.  Can I still be admitted to this major?

For Active Military Personnel: The requirement to be admitted into the Bachelor’s Applied Science (BAS) in Meteorology is that students MUST have an Associate of Applied Science degree from the Community College of the Air Force or equivalent.
