Official scores must be sent to the UA Office of the Registrar.  If you did not designate the UA as a recipient of your score at the time of your exam, you may send your scores to the UA through the College Board CLEP Program site. Once your score is processed by UA, you can view your credit in UAccess Student: Academic Record: Transfer Credit report.


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


First-Year Students, 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 CLEP / college math credits. Incoming students should refer to the information in the Next Steps Center.
