Resources and Handouts


Common AP/IB Transfer Credit:

We recommend waiting until you meet with your academic advisor at orientation to determine which credits you can claim for your AP/IB scores.  Follow up with your academic advisor may be required for summer AP/IB submissions.

We also recommend students wait until meeting with their advisor to take the ALEKS chemistry assessment as refunds are not an option for the ALEKs preparation package.

CNS Math Options:

Every College of Natural Sciences student is required to purchase the Math Readiness Package and take the UT Math Assessment (UTMA) by June 1st.  You will discuss your UTMA results during your academic advising appointment.

The UTMA is designed to determine the calculus course that best fits your needs and abilities.  Nobody fails this assessment because it is simply an indicator of your high school calculus preparation. 

UT Austin has the resources for pre-calculus and calculus learning opportunities to assist you in your success.
