Transfer Notes and Acceptable Substitutes

Transfer coursework deemed equivalent to the calculus sequence may be substituted for all or part of MAC 2311-2312-2313. Specialized courses in calculus for business, architecture, or life sciences, regardless of when or where taken, are not considered equivalent to MAC 2311, 2312, and/or 2313. Determinations of equivalence will be made by the mathematics faculty on a case-by-case basis. The statewide articulation agreement only requires the receiving institution to accept MAC 2311, 2312, and 2313 as a completed sequence. Awarding equivalence for partial completion of the sequence is at the discretion of the receiving institution.

Transfer credits will ordinarily be accepted from regionally accredited institutions and evaluated for appropriate credit toward requirements in the student's degree program.
