Exam and Transfer Credits

Transfer Math Credit

Many courses or exams (credit by exam) automatically award UA credit.


FIRST: Check these lists first to see if your course automatically transfers to UA for credit.   Arizona Institutions    Out-of-Arizona Institutions    AP, IB, CLEP, CIE 

SECOND: If your course or exam is not listed, or your course has already transferred in as Math 1tr or Math 3tr, submit an evaluation.

Transfer Course Evaluation Form for courses already completed

Transfer Course Evaluation Form to pre-approve a course before taking it 

  • If you do not yet have a UA SID or NET ID, just put in 00000000.
  • Note that you are asked to provide links to ALL Math (and Statistics if applicable) course descriptions, not just the description of the course that you took or want to take. Failure to provide this will delay your evaluation. 

  • Online, correspondence, or distance learning courses are not approved unless ALL exams are proctored and proctored exams account for more than 50% of the overall grade. All exams must be proctored, not just the final, as part of the course requirements for all students taking the course. Please provide the course syllabus, with grading policy and exam policy with your evaluation. Again, we do not accept courses if proctored exams are not required for all students, and do not account for more than 50% of the overall grade.

The evaluation process usually takes one to two weeks to complete. Incomplete forms will not be processed.


Transfer credit may be used as prerequisite placement into UA Math courses only if taken within the last 18 months (for non-incoming freshman).

Students also need to have official transcripts or scores sent to the UA Office of the Registrar.

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

International Transfer Credits - If your math course is from outside the U.S. and course information is not available online, you can bring your catalog course descriptions to math advising at your orientation or to the Math Academic Office in Mathematics Room 108.

Incoming Transfer Students with math credits may need to contact the Placement Office to update their placement into the UA system.
