Baruch Pre-MFE Pre requisites

Hello QuantNet Team,

I recently completed the amazing C++ Programming for Financial Engineering Certification. I have some questions about the pre-requisites for the Pre-MFE courses at Baruch and would love to obtain some clarification.

I did my Bachelors Degree in Computer Science in UK awhile back. And unfortunately there weren't any Calculus or Linear Algebra modules that were required to be taken at University. I'm currently working full-time and it is a bit of a time constraint to physically go to college to complete the required Calculus modules for the Pre-requisites. On the other hand, I have come across a couple of US Universities that are offering 4 credit courses from Calc I to Calc III and Linear ALgebra on their online platforms (ex: University of North Dakota etc.). I was wondering whether completion of these online university credited courses would meet the Calculus and Linear Algebra requirements for the Pre-MFE courses at Baruch.

Thanks in advance for any insight and advice.
