Evaluate Math Transfer Credit

Allow up to 3-4 weeks for review and processing. Requests are reviewed in the order received through the online form submission. We are not able to expedite requests, so please plan accordingly. 

Submissions without the minimum required materials for evaluation will result in additional delays in processing. 

Students should have their transfer credit evaluated before orientation, so they will be able to enroll in further coursework. 

Note: The Department of Mathematics does not evaluate Statistics courses. Students should review Department of Statistics Transfer Credit.


Students that have not yet taken a course at another institution, and plan to take one in the future should visit Taking Math Classes at Another Institution.


Steps to Evaluate Unevaluated Transfer Coursework

The Department of Mathematics requires students to have all unevaluated Math courses reviewed at the same time. If students do not submit required materials for all completed and/or currently enrolled math courses, the evaluation request will not be accepted.

Students must identify all math courses that need to be evaluated. Review Understanding Math Transfer Credit to identify the math courses that must be evaluated.


Students may only submit one Transfer Credit Evaluation Request. Before starting the request, students will need to compile the following required materials: 

  1. Transfer Credit Report - Instructions to Run Transfer Credit Report [pdf]
  2. Detailed Syllabus - for each course from the semester in which the course was completed
    • Syllabi and additional materials must indicate
      • Name of textbook including author and edition (a table of contents needs to be submitted if a custom textbook is used)
      • List of sections covered in the textbook in the course
        Note: Homework sheets, class schedules/calendars, or similar documents can be submitted in addition to syllabi
    • Students should contact the math department at their previous institution if they do not have the required materials. If the institution does not have materials for the semester in which the course was completed, a letter or email from the department may be submitted in lieu of a syllabus.
  3. Additional Instructions - required for the following courses:

Transfer credit evaluations are submitted through an online system. This online system will ask students to upload their course materials. Students will be able to submit at most 3 files for each course needing to be evaluated. All materials should be submitted as PDF or Microsoft Word files.

  • Hard Copy Materials - Scan into a PDF file
  • Multiple PDF Files - Combine into at most 3 files for each math course
  • Websites - Save as PDF files
    • "Print to PDF". Go to File -> Print, change printer to "Save as PDF".
    • Use a Webpage to PDF converter to convert websites to PDF files.
    • Do not copy and paste content from a website into a word document. The original website must be submitted in the form of a PDF file.
  • Image files - Combine into a single file (insert images into a word document)
