7.11. Evaluation of non-math transfer work

Math/SDS Majors and MinorsRegistration and transcriptsEvaluation of non-math transfer work

There are two parts to the processing of transfer credit: 1. awarding of credit (or not) and 2. evaluation for equivalency to a specific UArizona course. Many courses from other institutions have already been evaluated for credit and equivalency; check the Transfer Credit Guide to look up your course(s). Steps:

  1. Begin by finding your transfer college/university using the search or alphabetical listing.
  2. From there, look up the course prefix/number combination.
  3. If you see a specific UA course listed in the column on the right, you can count on the course transferring as that UA course (provided you earn a C or better in it). If the course is not listed, it will need evaluation - see below. Ask your advisor if you need help interpreting what you see in the table.

Evaluation of a transfer course:

Instructions for evaluation of a transfer course are provided on the Transfer Credit Website. Note that evaluation of a Math course has a separate form/process (scroll down on the page above to access or see below).

There are a few special cases:

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 & Data Science, contact the Math Center to request a gen ed evaluation:  Please send your message from your official UA email address and include your student ID number.

Math:  read the information at  and follow the instructions. This link is also available through your Next Steps Center if you are an incoming student.

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 textbook(s) 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).

If you do not have the syllabus for the course, you should email the department that runs to course to request one. This is a very common request!
