Students can contact the Math Placement Office for additional information about their individual circumstance. 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. 

To get credit for your AP Exam, please do BOTH of these things:

  1. Send an Official Score Report to the UA Registrar through the College Board Advanced Placement Program site. This is not provided through your High School.

  2. Check if UA has processed your score:

  • Check to see if your transfer credit is in UAccess You can check this a week before your orientation. If UA has your score, we can use this for your fall schedule.  ( see if this link is in the new system)
  • If UA does not have your score:  Email a copy of your AP score report to the Math Placement Office one week before your orientation.  Include your Student ID number (8 digits) and Orientation date. If you have questions about your next math course, please include that in the email.
  • If you do not have your score yet, then you may need a math placement for registration purposes.  Incoming students should refer to their Next Steps Center.
