Math Placement

As a science major, your math placement is the basis for your first semester class schedule. You can see math placement information using the link below. When looking at the QA placement guide, be sure to look at the far right column, which lists the progression of classes for science majors. Avoid taking classes that are not on the calculus track, such as Math 1030 Quantitative Reasoning, Math 1040 or 1070 which are introductory statistics classes, and Math 1090 Business Algebra.

Meet with an Academic Advisor

meet with an advisor

We look forward to meeting you at New Student Orientation. During your appointment, we will discuss your interests and create an appropriate first semester class schedule. Be prepared to discuss concurrent enrollment classes and AP/IB test scores. In the meeting, we will also share information we think is important for you as you begin your time at the U. If you have more questions, don’t worry! During fall semester, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with an advisor again and discuss whatever is on your mind.

If you are a transfer student, email your advisor an unofficial copy of your transcripts, as your courses may not be posted to your U of U record yet.

Permission Codes

permission codes

If you meet the prerequisites but the system doesn’t recognize this, you will need to request a permission code. Some common (though not exhaustive) reasons for needing a permission code are:

  • You have a transfer course from a school outside of Utah.
  • You are meeting the prerequisite with a concurrent enrollment class that hasn’t yet posted to your U of U record.
  • You are currently enrolled in the prerequisite at another school.
  • You are meeting the prerequisite with an AP score that is more than two years old or with an IB HL score.
