Math Course Reevaluations

Overview

The UW-Madison Department of Mathematics is willing to reevaluate math transfer courses. Before submitting the Math Transfer Credit Reevaluation Request Form, please read through the following information:

  • The Office of Admissions initially evaluates transfer courses.
  • If the course did not transfer, check with the Office of Admissions or the Math Consultant (if at SOAR) to find out why it did not transfer. Possible causes: course is not equivalent to any of the courses offered at UW-Madison, student did not submit a detailed syllabus, course did not cover most of the material required, etc. See course descriptions at http://guide.wisc.edu/courses/math/.
  • When appealing course transfer evaluations to the Math Department by submitting the Math Transfer Credit Reevaluation Form, you will need to have the following information available for submission:
    • Name of the institution, course number
    • A complete syllabus from the semester in which the course was taken, including the name of the institution and course number, a list of topics covered, and the name of the textbook used with chapters covered. If the original syllabus was not written in English, you should not translate the syllabus to English yourself.
    • Course website (if available)

The Math Department will review the syllabus. If the content is approved by the Math Department as being equivalent to a current math course, a reevaluation recommendation will be made to the Office of Admissions. The Office of Admissions makes the final decision on whether a course will transfer in as recommended by the Math Department. In this way, a reevaluation does not guarantee that you will receive credit for an equivalent UW-Madison math course. Someone from the Math Department will reach out to you after the reevaluation with next steps and/or alternative suggestions.
