Department of Mathematics Credit

The Department of Mathematics offers tests for credit and advanced placement during the first week of classes. Students who have had calculus in high school and who place high enough on the UW System Math Placement Test may consult with the math advisor during SOAR about taking the UW–Madison Calculus Placement Exam during the first week of classes. Based on performance on this exam, students may earn credit for Math 221 and/or Math 222 (Calculus and Analytic Geometry I, II). Students who have established advanced placement credit by other means, such as AP or IB, do not need to take this exam.
