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 have send an unofficial score report to the Math Placement Office. 

Send Scores: Official scores must be sent to the UA Office of the Registrar. If you haven’t already, send an Official Score Report to the UA Registrar through the Cambridge International Examination Program site. This is not provided through your High School.  Once your score is processed by UA, you can view your credit in UAccess Student: Academic Record: Transfer Credit report.

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