Developmental, remedial and general education requirement (GER) mathematics and beginning statistics courses are offered through all three campuses of UAS; Juneau (J), Ketchikan (K) and Sitka (T). Some of these courses are offered as distance courses through the Ketchikan and Sitka campuses. Except for STAT S400, all courses offered through the Juneau campus are local courses.

The following course descriptions are for mathematics and statistics courses listed in the current UAS Academic Catalog.

Mathematics Majors, see sample programs of study starting in odd numbered fall semesters, and even numbered fall semesters.
