In order to obtain prior approval for transferring credit from a course taken at another university or college, or to receive calculus credit for Cambridge A-level examinations or IB-HL, you must get approval from a mathematics department representative by filling out our online form. For A-level approval please also send a copy of your A-level transcript to firstname.lastname@example.org. For a transfer course you will be asked for the syllabus and/or course description of the course you wish to transfer. If a syllabus is unavailable please send a catalog description of the course. The advisor will need this description in order to compare the course with the courses offered at this university—it is not enough (or necessary) that the course has the same name.
Upon completion of your approved course, send a copy of your transcript to the College Center for Advising Services (CCAS), as described in the advising handbook.
If you are a matriculated student wishing to transfer credit for a summer course or a study abroad course, you must get approval before you take the course.
- No more than 1 core course may be transferred for the math major.
- No more than 4 courses at the 200-level may be transferred for the math major.
- MATH 235 cannot be transferred for the math minor.
- Math courses less than 5 weeks long are not approved for transfer credit.
- Online math courses must have proctored exams that collectively comprise at least 50% of the course grade.
**Exceptions to these restrictions are only made with special permission from the Department's undergraduate committee.
If you would like to arrange to take an exam for credit-by-exam, email email@example.com. Credit by exam is ONLY offered if you have taken a course in the subject, but you are not eligible for transfer credit. Credit-by-exam is never offered for self-study.

Declaring a major or minor
You can submit a major or minor declaration using the online form. If you have met with a faculty advisor already, please write their name in as your faculty advisor, and email them when you submit your declaration. Otherwise, we will reject your submission and request to meet. You can resubmit easily after you have met with an advisor. All faculty members can serve as major/minor advisors. If you would like to be a math major, ask your favorite professor to be your advisor.
