To view how UA awards credit for IB exams, see the UA Policy for IB Credit.   Please note that the IB exam must be a higher-level (HL) exam only. Standard-level (SL) IB Math exams do not award credit and are not used as prerequisites.


It is the student's responsibility to make sure he/she is enrolled in the correct UA Math course after college credits are processed into the UA system. Students can contact the Math Placement Office for additional information.


Freshman or students who attend freshman orientation must have a placement through SAT I MSS, ACT MATH, or ALEKS PPL for entry into a course at or below the level of Calculus I, even students with college math credits. Incoming students need to refer to the information in the Next Steps Center.
