Registration Advice to Transfer Students

Mathematics Major
There are two separate Math majors to choose between, Math BA and Math BS.  Both degrees require 36 credits in mathematics numbered 110 or higher; the BS also requires six credits in Computer Science.  Both require minors to also be completed; the BS specifies that students choose a minor from a select list.
Mathematics 214 (Calculus of Several Variables) and 220 (Linear Algebra) are required for both majors. The BA requires one course in each of four areas; the BS requires two separate sequences which consist of two courses each. There are a number of choices to satisfy these requirements.

As a transfer student it is important for you to also use your Degree Audit Report (DARS) to determine what you’ve already completed and what is left for you to finish at Albany. As you review your audit, please consider the following information that we have found to be important to transfer students:

  • A Mathematics major may be declared after you earn a grade of C or higher AMat 113, 119, or 214 (calculus II and multi-variable calculus). Transfer credits may be used to satisfy this requirement.
  • Math majors are advised to follow the sequence of major courses outlined on the Mathematics BA MAP or BS MAP, particularly in the first three semesters.  Note your starting point based on the math classes you have previously completed.
  • Your DARS will list the upper level requirements, along with the choice of classes to satisfy them.

Prerequisites:   It is important to know/follow the prerequisites for the courses you will need to take.  Check course descriptions on MyUAlbany and in the Undergraduate Bulletin.
Please complete and submit your Educational Plan based on this information.  You will be registered for classes by your academic advisor, and your schedule will be finalized when you meet at Orientation or when classes begin.
