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 report.  Students can contact the Math Placement Office for additional information.

Official scores must be sent to the UA Office of the Registrar.  

Freshman 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.
