7.10. Evaluation of non-math transfer work
While the Registrar's office determines whether or not transfer course work is acceptable for UA credit, it is up to individual departments to determine whether the content of a transfer course is sufficiently similar to a UA course to count as that UA course in a student's program. Most departments are now using a common form for submission of transfer evaluations. See http://academicaffairs.arizona.edu/transfer-credits
There are a few special cases:
In-State Transfers: many in-state courses do not need evaluation; to see how your course transfers to UA, check the online course equivalency guide:
General Education: your Academic Advisor for your primary major can either evaluate your general education coursework or give you instructions for having it evaluated. If your primary (or only) major is Mathematics or Statistics, contact College of Science advisor Tharini “Raini” Wijeweera to request a gen ed evaluation: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send your message from your official UA email address and include your student ID number.
Math: read the information at http://math.arizona.edu/academics/placement/credits and follow the instructions. Placement information for transfer students is posted at http://math.arizona.edu/academics/placement/transfer These links are also available through your Next Steps Center if you are an incoming student.
Chemistry: read the information at http://cbc.arizona.edu/education/undergrad/transfer_evaluation and follow the instructions.
English: read the information at https://english.arizona.edu/writing-program/transfer-students and follow the instructions.
- If you have taken your courses in the US, submit your course information through the usual form found at
If you took Physics units outside of the US, please e-mail this information with an attached syllabus and course information directly to email@example.com
All students must include a link or attach information to the catalog description and a detailed syllabus. The syllabus must list the topics covered each week, the textbooks used and the number of contact hours each week. Please submit your information well in advance to allow adequate time for review. We cannot review courses that do not include a detailed syllabus and lab information (if applicable).
