Determining the level of an individual studies course:
The
faculty member who is mentoring the individual studies course decides
on the level at their sole discretion. Some general guidelines:
100 level should be used for projects with no prerequisite college math/sds courses or knowledge,
200 level where the prerequisite knowledge/courses are 100 level (e.g. Calculus 1 or 2),
300 level where the prerequisite is 200 level (math 223  vector calculus, math 254 level ODEs), and
400 level for courses with 300 or 400 level prerequisites.
Mathematical maturity may also be a consideration, and faculty should feel free to use their judgment.
Note
that if a Math or SDS major or minor wishes to use an individual
studies course to satisfy degree requirements, they should check with
the Math Center (Laurie or Michelle) to see if that is possible.
2.2. Internships
As of 2019, University requirements regarding internship enrollment
and reporting have changed. Students enrolling in Internship courses
(DATA/MATH 293, 393, 493) must complete and submit an Internship Work
Plan. The Work Plan includes a section that must be completed and signed
by the supervisor at the site of the internship.
Download the Work Plan form here.
The
form is a fillable PDF; to complete the form, you will need to use
Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 (or later). Adobe Acrobat Reader is available
for free and can be downloaded from the following web site: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep.html
Download the file to your computer; be sure to include your name in the file name, and resave after you fill out the form.
See Examples of Goals, Purpose, Learning Objectives and Activities for help with those sections of the Work Plan, and be sure to read all of the guidelines and policies below.
Undergraduate
students may enroll in internship credit through the Math Department
(DATA/MATH 293, 393, or 493) subject to the following guidelines and
policies:
1. Application of internship credit
For
Math or SDS majors, up to 3 units of 493 internship (MATH 493 for Math
majors; DATA 493 for SDS majors) may be used toward application course
requirements. If a student wishes to complete additional internship
credit, the enrollment can apply towards general elective credit.
All Internship courses use alternative grading: S, P, F.
2. Enrollment requirements, procedure, deadlines
a.
Requirements: Internships with significant mathematical (MATH) or
statistical (DATA) content as determined by one of our designated
internship coordinators may be considered for credit under the
appropriate prefix. (For other internships, credit may be earned under
TLS; details are available here.)
b. Procedure:
i. After filling out the Math Department Internship Work Plan Form (fillable PDF) and having page 4 completed by the internship site supervisor, student submits the Work Plan to mcenter@math.arizona.edu. COVID19 update: The student must also complete and submit the Assessment of COVID19 Workplace Risk form (submit to the Math Center with the Work Plan).
ii. Office staff will route the form to designated internship instructors.
iii. If approved, Academic Office staff will add the appropriate
internship course to the schedule, and then add the student to the
course.
iv. The approval/enrollment process may take up to 2 weeks. Please plan ahead.
c.
Deadlines: Students needing to be enrolled by the first day of classes
for financial aid purposes will need to submit their completed
Internship Work Plan at least 2 weeks before the start of term.
Internship units will generally not be added after the deadline to drop
with a W.
3. Determining the level of an individual studies course:
100 level internship credit is not available through the Math Department.
Students should select:
 293 when the prerequisite knowledge and/or courses needed for the internship are 100 level (e.g. Calculus 1 or 2),
 393 when the prerequisite is 200 level (math 223  vector calculus, math 254 level ODEs), and
 493 for internships with 300 or 400 level prerequisites.
The
internship instructor will contact the student if there are questions
regarding the appropriate level of the internship course in the Work
Plan form.
4. Student intern responsibilities
Students are responsible for securing their own internship offer. Handshake is a recommended resource.
It
is the responsibility of the student to ensure that the request for
credit has been submitted (with all appropriate signatures), approved,
and that they have been enrolled in the correct course/units.
It
is also the responsibility of the student to ensure that the internship
instructor receives the final product in consultation with the
internship instructor, but no later than the last day of exams for the
term.
For unpaid internships, students should be aware
of the U.S. Department of Labor’s seven factor primary beneficiary test
related to unpaid internships (these factors are used to determine
whether or not an intern is really an employee, and therefore entitled
to minimum wage and overtime under FLSA). The guidelines updated as of
January 2018 are available at: https://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/whdfs71.htm
For
internships abroad, students should contact the consulate of the host
country regarding applicable employment law and visa requirements.
International
students may be required to apply for and receive work authorization
approval from International Student Services (ISS) before participating
in an internship. More information can be found on the ISS website under
F1 Student Employment or J1 Academic Training pages at https://global.arizona.edu/iss
5. Site/company responsibilities
Paid
internships: Employers are expected to follow all relevant federal,
state, and local employment laws when students are hired as employees
for paid internships.
6. Additional UA policies
Students are expected to understand and comply with the university guidelines and policies for internship enrollment at https://registrar.arizona.edu/sites/registrar.arizona.edu/files/forms/Internship%20PoliciesGuidelines%205619.pdf
2.3. 500Level Courses for Undergrads
Students may request to register for 500level courses if
 they are a Junior (at least 60 units earned) in the Honors College, or a Senior (at least 90 units earned), AND
 they have at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA.
To
request enrollment, first fill out the Student Information portion of
the Undergraduate Enrollment in Graduate Courses form in ink. The form
can be obtained at the Math Academic Office window in Mathematics Room
108, or downloaded and printed here.
You can choose to earn Honors credit (if in the Honors College),
undergraduate credit, or graduate credit. Note that graduate credit is
unlikely to be useful for undergraduate students and will not count as
units toward graduation. If you are a Math or SDS major, speak with your
Faculty Advisor or Academic Advisor if you are not sure what type of
credit to request.
Write in the course(s) to be taken
and drop off the form at room 108 or during Math Center walkin hours.
The Math Center will consult with your faculty advisor and instructors
and contact you via email when we have an answer to your request. If
approval is granted, we will help you obtain the necessary signatures.
After the form is complete, we will return it to you to deliver to Room
210 of the Administration Building for processing.
Students should expect the process to take up to two weeks, possibly longer at busy times, so please plan ahead.
2.4. Honors Courses
To graduate with honors from the Honors College,
30 units of honors course work are usually required. Some students who
enter with more than 30 units of transfer work may take fewer honors
units; consult your Honors Student Success Counselor for more information.
Honors Math Sections Offered
The
Math Department offers a few honors courses/sections that count toward a
mathematics major: courses in the Calculus sequence may have special
honors sections available. These honors math courses are available to
highly motivated students with strong mathematical backgrounds.
Acceptance to the UA Honors College is not
a requirement for Math 129H or Math 223H. Registration for these honors
sections is blocked until the Mathematics Department can verify student
eligibility. Eligibility rules depend on:

Current UA Students  by invitation: Each semester,
students who receive a grade of A in the course AND on the final exam of
the prerequisite course are emailed an invitation. Students who
receive the email just have to reply, asking to be added to the honors
section. During priority registration, you may wish to plan around
this: Whenever possible, try to enroll in a nonhonors section offered
at the same time as the honors section, so we can make an easy swap.
Please note that because the honors section appears closed, you will
need to search for its time by unchecking the box "show only open
sections".

Fall Incoming Freshmen  by placement: Since there is
no opportunity for instructors to nominate students into their very
first UA MATH course, other criteria can be used to determine honors
eligibility for certain courses (usually a very high placement test
score plus college credit for the prerequisite course, usually from an
AP exam). Generally speaking, students are informed of their eligibility
during New Student Orientation;
plan to speak with a math placement advisor during the lunchtime
sessions at your orientation program. Eligibility is for Fall first
semester Freshmen only.
Note: Math 254 Honors does require enrollment in the UA Honors College. Students may selfenroll if they meet the requirements.
2.5. I am looking for a study aid for the final exam for a course with a common final. Where can I find it?
The courses with common final exams also have course websites. They are listed below:

rates of change, linear functions, systems of equations, exponential
and logarithmic functions, and quadratic functions. Graphing calculators
and spreadsheets will be used. It is not intended for students planning
to take MATH 122A/B, and it will not serve as a prerequisite for that
course. Except as per University policy on repeating a course, credit
will not be given for this course if the student has credit in a higher
level math course. Such students may be dropped from the course.
Examinations are proctored. Credit will be allowed for only one of the
following courses: MATH 109, MATH 109C, MATH 110, or MATH 112.
Comments: This
course is designed for students in Eller College, Communications,
Political Science, Journalism, Sociology, Nursing, Psychology, and those
majors that eventually require statistics. Topics are similar to MATH
112 but with more emphasis on data analysis. Students who take this
course and switch to a major that requires MATH 122A/B should take MATH
120R. Most majors that accept Math
112 (College Algebra) for their math requirement will accept Math 109C.
Students who choose a major in the College of Science, College of
Engineering, Architecture and some majors within the College of
Agriculture and Life Sciences should choose Math 112 instead. Additional
questions should be directed to an advisor. This course has a common

completion of Math 111+112 will no longer gain a student entry into Math
122A/B. If a student is on a calculus track and placed into Math 112,
then the student should then take Math 120R (PreCalculus) and not Math
111. Math 111 is a major requirement for Architecture and Speech &
Hearing Sciences majors. This course has a common final exam.
Course website: http://math.arizona.edu/~trig/
2.11. It says that Math 112 is hybrid. What does this mean? What is required of me?
In sections that are hybrid, students will
be responsible for watching some lecture videos outside of class.
Students will have a facetoface meeting with their instructor twice
per week. During the inperson meetings, instructors will teach the
students the material covered in the course that was not viewed in the
online lecture videos. Exams are taken in person for these hybrid
sections. Instructors will hold regular office hours to assist students
when they have questions.
MyMathLab is a course management system that
will provide students with access to an interactive electronic textbook

3.1. Waitlists
The Math Department does not maintain waitlists for any of our
courses. You will need to continue to check UAccess for an open seat.
If, on the first day of class, you have not acquired a seat in your
desired section, you may contact the instructor and request their
permission to add you.
Please note
that instructors will generally wait for UAccess to close to
registration (usually 8 days after the start of the semester) before
they add additional students. However, it is not a bad idea to start
talking with instructors.
3.2. Prerequisites taken at UA over Winter/Summer
As soon as you are registered for the prerequisite course at
the University of Arizona for Winter or Summer, you should be able to
register for the subsequent course for the following semester.
Note: The timing is important!
Summer
registration usually opens at the beginning of Priority Registration
for Fall (after Spring Break). By the time you are able to register in
your Priority Registration week, you should be able to register for the
subsequent course in Fall with no problem.
Winter
registration usually opens AFTER Priority registration for Spring, i.e.
when Open Registration for Spring begins. This means that you will
need to wait until open registration to 1) register for the Winter
prerequisite class, then 2) register for the Spring class.
3.3. Prerequisites taken at another institution over Summer
In order to guarantee that a course will transfer, courses taken outside of Arizona need to be preapproved 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 over summer
at another institution, you will need to complete the course BEFORE you
will be able to register for the subsequent course at the U of A. To
be cleared to register for the subsequent UA course, you will need to
provide documentation showing successful completion of the prerequisite
course. Once your grade has posted, email placement@math.arizona.edu
with a PDF of your unofficial transcript or a screenshot from your
student portal that includes in a single picture:
 your full name
 the name of the institution
 the course name and course number
 the semester it was taken
 and your final course grade
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 before classes start in August as explained above,
but you will be able to register for the subsequent UA course for Fall
by June 1st.
3.4. Math 125 Registration
In order to register for Math 125, you must have a current placement
score of UA ALEKS PPL 85100% or Prep for Calculus 85100%.
To check your current placement score, see http://math.arizona.edu/academics/placement/exams/scores
Transfer credit for Calculus I does not make you eligible for Math 125. You must take the ALEKS placement exam and place into Math 125 with a score of 85% or higher.
Math
125 is an accelerated Calculus I course, meeting only 3 days a week in
class rather than the 5 days a week for Math 122A/B. Because this class
has less facetime with instructors in class, we require a higher
placement level.
3.5. Enrollment in a Full Class
Prior to the start of the semester:
We are not able to
add students to sections that are full. The Math Dept does not have
waitlists. Please continue to check the UAccess online registration
system for an available seat. Students can use UAccess Student to add
courses through the first week of class.
First week of the semester:
The Math Department Staff are not able to add students to sections that are full. The department policy is this:
Students
should be trying to add classes via UAccess, before it closes down to
registration (typically 1 week into the semester). Instructors generally
do not add students prior to this time. Once UAccess closes, and an
instructor has physical space in their classroom, they may choose to add
more students via a departmental yellow permission form. Note
that the instructor is not obligated to add anyone, and they will not
sign a university Change of Schedule Form. They must give you a Math
Department yellow permission form.
In the meantime, please keep checking UAccess. We often see a lot of movement in classes during the first week.
3.6. Math 122B Registration
Math 122B requires enrollment of Math 122A in the same semester (or
a previously recorded grade of C or better in 122A). Try adding Math
122A first before adding Math 122B.
Math 122A has precise prerequisites that must be met:
Either:
 Sufficient Math Placement score (UA ALEKS PPL score of 75100% or Prep for Calculus 70100%) OR
 Completion of Math 120R (PreCalculus) with a grade of C or better
Transfer credit for the prerequisite courses may suffice. Please review the transfer credit information at http://math.arizona.edu/academics/placement/credits
To check your current placement score, go to http://math.arizona.edu/academics/placement/exams/scores and log in with your NetID and password.
3.7. Math 116 Registration
Math 116 has several prerequisites:
ONE of :
 MIS 111 (Management Information Systems) OR
 ABE 120 (Agric & Biosystems Engin)
AND
ONE of:
 Sufficient math placement score (ALEKS PPL 60100% or Prep for Calculus 65100%, Prep for College Algebra 88100%) OR
 Completion of UA Math 109C OR Math 112
Typical reasons for not being able to enroll:
 The student's math placement score has expired. To check your current math placement score and date, please go to http://math.arizona.edu/academics/placement/exams/scores.
 Student
is registered in MIS 111 or ABE 120 in the same intended semester as
Math 116 (MIS 111/ABE 120 must be completed BEFORE Math 116 begins.)
 Student
is taking a similar class to MIS 111 at another institution while
trying to enroll in Math 116 for the following semester (we need to see
an unofficial transcript showing completion of the course before you can
enroll in UA Math 116)
3.8. Unable to Enroll
The UAccess system can "overlook" some of your prerequisites in the following instances:
 The system looks to the first time you received credit for the prerequisite course.
For example, suppose you are trying to enroll in Math 223, which
requires a grade of C or higher in Math 129. However, on your first
attempt of Math 129 you received a D. Since this is a passing grade, you
received credit, but you didn't meet the prerequisites. Even after you
have passed Math 129 on further attempts with a grade of C or better,
the system doesn't see past the first attempt. Ask for assistance in Math 108 as our staff can add a milestone so the system can recognize the prerequisite credit.
 If your prerequisite material was transferred in more than 3 semesters ago, the material is outdated, and you may be required to retake the placement exam. If you end up testing below the level you were expecting, you should contact placement@math.arizona.edu for advising.
 If your prerequisite material was transferred in, the system may just not be recognizing it. Ask for assistance in Math 108 as our staff can add a milestone so the system can recognize the prerequisite credit.
You
might also have a hold on your account, as shown by a negative service
indicator (red circle with a slash through it) in the upper righthand
corner of your UAccess screen. Click on the icon to see which hold it it is.
If you believe you are eligible for a class yet you cannot enroll, please contact the Math Placement Office.
3.9. Permission Number
Our department does not use permission numbers, but you should not need one before the class begins.
Department permission is required for the following:
 Trying to add Math 100 in the Fall semester.
For incoming Freshman, in the Fall, Math 100 is part of the Schedule
for Success program, and you must be enrolled in the program to register
for Math 100. Email Cassandra Hirdes at scheduleforsuccess@email.arizona.edu
to enroll in the program. If you are not an incoming Freshman, email
academics@math.arizona.edu to request enrollment in Math 100.
 Trying to add any class via UAccess after it has closed down for adding classes
(typically 8 days after the start of the semester). To add a class
after this time, please see the instructor of the class you wish to add,
and obtain a signed departmental permission form. (Instructors will not sign a Change of Schedule form.)
3.10. I am retaking a course, but I am not able to register for it. Why?
Possible problems:
 If you had placed directly into the class on your first attempt, it could be that your placement score has already expired.
Placement scores are valid for one year only. If you are GROing the
course, we can add you into the course without having you retest, but
realize that you have now been at least a semester without math, and you
should take responsibility to review the prerequisite material.
 You are limited by University policy to only three attempts at a math class. This
includes failed attempts as well as terms where you received a grade of
W. If you wish to attempt it a 4th time, you will need to request an
exception to the university repeat policy.
Your first steps:
 Complete form at http://min.math.arizona.edu/academics/repeatexception
 When
you receive email confirmation, set up an appointment with your
academic advisor (they will be CC'd on the confirmation email)
 Meet with your academic advisor to discuss options using this form.
 If it is decided that repeating the course is the best option, return the form to room 108 of the Math building.
We will process the request approximately 2 weeks before the intended term begins.
We submit an online form requesting the exception, and then your
graduation services advisor will email you when you are cleared to
register for the course. Once you receive that notification, it is up to
you to enroll in the course via UAccess.
Please submit the online form (from Step 1) now to begin the process.
3.11. Can I drop back from Math 129 to Math 125?
If you are struggling in Math 129 (Calculus II), it might be a good idea to drop back into Calculus I.
We recommend that you try to enroll in Math 122A/B.
We
do not suggest dropping back into Math 125, an accelerated course in
Calculus I. However, if you meet the requirements for Math 125 (a math
placement test score of 85100% on the ALEKS PPL or ALEKS Prep for
Calculus exam), you may make this change via UAccess within the first
week.
If you are switching courses after UAccess
registration has closed, you will need to get the permission of the
instructor for the course you are adding (Calculus I). If they are
willing/able to add you, they will provide you a Math Dept yellow
permission form. They cannot sign a university Change of Schedule form.
Bring the yellow permission form to Math room 108 to process the
change.
Please contact the Math Office Staff in Math 108 if you need assistance.
3.12. When I try to add a class via UAccess, it tells me I have a hold. What does that mean?
There are several reasons why a student might see a registration hold
(that is, a hold which prevents a student from adding any more
classes):

Bursar's Hold: Usually this is due to a pastdue
balance. Student should contact the Bursar's office immediately at (520)
6213232 to try to settle the account and have the hold removed.

Immunization Hold: Student Health will put a hold on
registration if you have not shown proof of current immunizations.
Student should contact Student Health or see https://www.health.arizona.edu/health_services_immunizations_requirements.htm for more information.

Mandatory Advising Hold: Academic Advisors may place
registration holds if they want the student to meet with their advisor
prior to registration. Student should contact their academic advisor
ASAP. They can usually find their academic advisor's name in UAccess, on
the panel on the righthand side.

Dean of Students Hold: Contact the Dean of Students Office at (520) 6217057 or see http://deanofstudents.arizona.edu/

Residence Life  Overdue Sanctions: If you have any questions regarding the overdue sanction process, please call Residence Life at 5206266015.
Registration holds usually only affect adding or swapping classes. Students should still be able to drop classes.
3.13. Why can't I add my math class during Priority Registration?
If you receive an error message when trying to enroll,
please read the message carefully. This may explain why you cannot add
the course.
Unit Limit : You may have reached the 19unit maximum set by your college.
Holds: You may have a hold on your record.
Prerequisites: You may be missing the prerequisite course. If you believe you took the prerequisite, click here.
If you still feel that you should be able to enroll in a course, but are not able to, please contact placement@math.arizona.edu
3.14. I'm in Math 100 right now. Why can't I add my next math class?
Enrollment in Math 100 is not a prerequisite for any math
class. It is the final exam for these classes which can place you into
your next math class. You must take your final exam and score
sufficiently high to place into your next math class.
Final
exam/placement scores are loaded into the system within 35 business
days of taking the final exam. You will be able to register for the Math
class you are eligible for once your score is posted to the system.
You can check the status of your posting at http://math.arizona.edu/academics/placement/exams/scores (if your Math 100 score is posted, you'll see an MCLG score, and approximate date of your final exam).
3.15. I am taking/have taken Math 113, but now I need Math 122A/B for my new major. How can I get into it?
Students may either retake the Placement Test to test directly into
Math 122A, or they may take Math 120R (PreCalculus) to fulfill the
prerequisites for Math 122A/B.
Math 113 is Brief
Calculus (essentially CalculuswithouttheTrig). The prerequisites for
Calculus I (Math 122A/B) are successful completion of Math 120R
(PreCalculus), that is passing with a C or better. By taking Math 113,
the student has demonstrated mastery of College Algebra, since that is a
prerequisite for Math 113. However, these students are missing the
trigonometry component. Even if the student can test directly into Math
122A/B, they may appreciate a solid review of trig before going into
Math 122A/B.
3.16. Can I take a math class at Pima and have it count for fulltime status at the UA?
Please see http://financialaid.arizona.edu/managingmyaid/consortiumagreementterms for more information about a consortium agreement.
