##### Provisional Approval:

- Mathematics graduate students who are actively working on a degree (taking at least 1 credit per year) and have successful completion of at least 27 quarter credits in graduate level mathematics on their transcripts have provisional approval to teach.

^{†}"Related fields" include, but are not limited to, Physics and Engineering. The appropriate Division Dean, in consultation with a Mathematics Faculty Department Chair, will make a recommendation to the appropriate DOI about the applicability of a particular degree as a "related field.” As Math Education is handled separately in these qualifications, it is not to be considered a "related field."

All degrees and transcripts must be from a regionally accredited college or university.
