college or university while maintaining a cumulative GPA of 2.95 overall or in the last two years; or 3.45 GPA in the major overall or last two years; or rank in the upper one third of my graduating class; or I am a member in a National Honor Society (not in my Freshman year). If more than 10 percent of your total undergraduate credit hour are non-graded, i.e. pass/fail, CLEP, DANTES, CCAF, military credit, etc. you cannot qualify based on GPA if you are attempting to qualify based on education.

B. I have a Combination of education and experience--courses equivalent to a major in mathematics (including at least 24 semester hours in mathematics) plus appropriate experience or additional education. I maintained a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.95 overall or in the last two years; or 3.45 GPA in the major overall or last two years; or rank in the upper one third of my graduating class; or I am a member in a National Honor Society (not in my Freshman year). All academic degree and course work must be from an accredited or pre-accredited institution. If more than 10 percent of your total undergraduate credit hours are non-graded, i.e. pass/fail, CLEP, DANTES, CCAF, military credit,etc. you cannot qualify based on GPA if you are attempting to qualify based on education; (Note total course work in either A or B above must have included differential and integral calculus and, in addition, four advanced mathematics courses requiring calculus or equivalent mathematics courses as a prerequisite).

PART-TIME OR UNPAID EXPERIENCE: Credit will be given for appropriate unpaid and or part-time work. You must clearly identify the duties and responsibilities in each position held and the total number of hours per week.

VOLUNTEER WORK EXPERIENCE: Refers to paid and unpaid experience, including volunteer work done through National Service Programs (i.e., Peace Corps, AmeriCorps) and other organizations (e.g., professional; philanthropic; religious; spiritual; community; student and social).

About Department of defense

The Department of Defense, for one, has made considerable progress since receiving its barely passing grade. MITRE, a Massachusetts-based technology think tank, has completed an evaluation of Defense systems and made a series of recommendations. And according to the Defense Department's Year 2000 program coordinator Carla von Bernewitz, the department is now well into the assessment stage, with "pockets of the DOD already involved in testing." One move toward a more unified federal response has been the establishment of a General Services Administration Web site. The site operates as the government's Year 2000 clearinghouse, with background information, contact names, vendor/contract data and conference schedules available for department and agency use.
