2.4. Prerequisites taken at another institution

In order to guarantee that a course will transfer, courses taken outside of Arizona need to be pre-approved using the Math Transfer Credit Approval Form.  Arizona courses may also need to be evaluated if they do not appear on the Arizona Course Equivalency Guide.  We do not start course evaluations for summer until the end of March.


If you are taking a class below the level of Calculus I at another institution, you will need to complete the course BEFORE you are able to register for the subsequent course at the U of A.  To be cleared to register for the subsequent UA course, please provide documentation showing successful completion of the prerequisite course. Once your grade has posted, email with a PDF of your unofficial transcript or a screenshot from your student portal that includes in a single picture:

Be sure to include your UA student ID number when you send the email.


If you are taking Calculus I or higher this summer at another institution, you will still need to provide proof of successful completion to before the start of your UA class, but you will be able to register for the subsequent UA Fall course by June 1st.
