What do I need to do to add the next UA Math course based on my Math credit? If your credits are not in the UA system, make sure you send an unofficial score report to the Math Placement Office.
If you haven’t already, send an Official Score Report to the UA Registrar. This is not provided through your High School.
It is the student's responsibility to make sure he/she is enrolled in the correct UA Math course after college credits are processed into the UA system. Once your score is processed by UA, you can view your credit in UAccess Student: Academic Record: Transfer Credit. Students can contact the Math Placement Office for additional information.
FirstYear Students, or students who attend freshman orientation, must have a placement through SAT I MSS, ACT MATH, or ALEKS PPL for entry into a course at or below the level of Calculus I, even students with college math credits. Incoming students need to refer to the information in the Next Steps Center.
