4.13. Transfer Credit Evaluation: Does my Transfer Math course need to be evaluated?

 

Incoming students: refer to the Math Placement section in Next Steps Center.

Pre-Approval Form: for students who have not yet completed a transfer course.

Many courses have already been evaluated and will automatically transfer to UArizona as a UA Math course.

  • Beginning/Elementary/Introductory Algebra courses are non-credit review courses.
  • Intermediate Algebra transfers as math elective credit and does not satisfy a UA math requirement.

Follow the flowchart below to determine if your transfer credit needs to be evaluated:

Is your credit posted in UAccess Student Center?

YES, my transfer credits are posted in the UAccess Student Center.

If your credit transfers as an Equivalent Course (i.e. Math 112, Math 223, etc.) there is no further action required

If your credit transfers as Math 1tr or Math 3tr, then the course needs to be evaluated. 

Submit the Transfer Credit Evaluation form.

  • We need the course descriptions of ALL math courses that the other institution offers, not just for the transfer course you want evaluated.
  • For online courses: you must provide the course syllabus, grading policy (how grades are calculated) and the exam proctoring policy.
NO, my transfer credits are not posted in the UAccess Student Center yet.

FAQs:

Are you having trouble registering for your next course?

  • First, check if your transfer credit is in the UA system.
  • If your transfer credits are not in UAccess Student Center yet, you can send an unofficial transcript to the Math Placement Office.
    • It must include your full name, the institution's name, term taken, course, and final grade.  
    • For registration into courses at or below the level of Calculus I, the transfer prerequisite must be less than 2 years old.  Check how course eligibility works here.

How is credit awarded?

  • The Math Department does not determine the number of credits that transfer in from a particular institution.
    • Quarter system units are converted to semester units by multiplying the units by 2/3.
    • Questions regarding this should be directed to the Office of the Registrar
