- Two additional courses selected from mathematics courses (MATH) numbered 26600 or higher or from statistics courses (STAT) numbered 35000 or higher.

Additional requirements for a minor in mathematics:

- Nine (9) credit hours of the minor must be completed at IUPUI.
- The grade in each course submitted for the minor must be C (2.0) or higher.
- Correspondence courses may not be used to fulfill requirements for the minor.
