They can told all three.

Data Science is a BS.

Math and Computer science are BA's and require the same capstone. You can have two areas of study for a BA and still do a BS as well. 

So it would be one BA (double major math/comp Sci) and one Bs (data Science)

Not sure if I want to take the extra classes for that. I had no idea that that would be possible, but I am trying to register for the September capstone and if the advisers allow me, graduate by this December and I don't know if that would be possible with an area of study in Math as well :/
I don't know you might already have it all done. At least from your signature it looks like you do. The problem is you might have too many overlap. I'd at least run a "what's" and see what it says. Or you can just add a math associates instead if this isn't possible.

That's really interesting actually, I did consider doing that early on but thought CS and Math would be a double major. Turns out that I have more credits towards the Bachelor's in Math! 93 credits as opposed to the 92 credits in CS. 

I was considering signing up for some of the Coopersmith UL Math courses for a while, so it's looking more likely than I thought!

CS and Math are a double major, this is not the same as a dual degree. TESU allows for two bachelors degrees so, for example, a BS and BA. However, in each of those degrees, you can have up to two areas of study. So you could have a maximum of four different majors in total between everything. They only send you one BA degree and the official degree says "Bachelors of Arts" and doesn't list the majors. However, on your transcript, it would list both majors. Hope this all makes sense. But basically if you wanted to you could do a BS Data Science and a BA in math/comp sci all at once and it would be allowed and doable.

I'm confused by the crossed off courses in the signature does that mean you did those or not? You might not even need to do any UL math courses if they can count of some of the statsics.com courses for the math degree as well, they do allow for some overlap. I'd talk to an advisor and see about adding a math BA to your program as well. If you can't do it, you can always drop it. Remember what if evaluations aren't always accurate so you could even more done then it says.

I would for sure add math associates you might already have that done and it wouldn't cost anything if you can't get the math BA at least you can get the math associates.

I think amaquiling will have to take two extra courses from an actual school to get the UL courses for the BA in Math, as I don't see any in the signature that I expect would be counted as UL Math. It certainly would be worth taking a closer look at the Math eval to see if any classes are being counted as UL Math, and definitely worth getting the associates.

Yeah, those are the courses I have taken and gotten credit for. The courses in-progress are italicized. Mostly for the purpose of holding myself accountable haha

Another thing to consider is that with TESU's new prices. Have you considered taking 16 credits at TESU to avoid the wavier since you are already at 9 credits planned at TESU? It might save you money especially if you qualify for the Pell grant.

Ultimately decided on doing the double major for my BA. I calculated the cost of taking the math courses at TESU, and it is only a couple hundred more, considering my employer's tuition assistance. My other UL course will be likely be a Coopersmith UL math course.
