If you have transfer credits coming in, you should review the math courses that you’ve received transfer credit for and make sure that the equivalencies seem correct. If you feel that the equivalencies may not be correct, the New Student page has information on how to go about requesting a reevaluation.
We strongly suggest that you work to get all your materials for a reevaluation as soon as possible so that they can be reevaluated in time for the start of the semester. Course reevaluations may affect your course selection for the upcoming semester (and beyond)!
It would be helpful if you could keep copies of your syllabi and unofficial transcripts on hand, in case they are useful in your meeting with a math major advisor.
If you are missing transfer credits (via AP/IB/college coursework) that should be posted to your student record, please review the New Student page (see the AP Scores, Transfer Credit, Reevaluations & More section) for directions on who to contact to get the credits posted.
Students that are unable to receive credit for MATH 221, 222, and/or 234 for whatever reason (they did not take the AP/IB exams, their transfer credit was not reevaluated as such, they took substantial calculus coursework that can’t be transferred to UW-Madison, etc.) are encouraged to review the Calculus Credit by Examination page. If you feel qualified to do so, you can consider registering for one or more of the exams listed. (Note that you can only take a credit exam for a particular course once, but you are welcome to take the associated exam for multiple courses.)
Students can change their course schedule up until add/drop deadlines after a reevaluation decision has been made, or after a credit exam has been passed.
