Incoming engineering and select sciences majors must be able to enroll in Calculus I or a higher level math class in your first semester at UTSA.
How to be Calculus Ready?
New students will be registered for their first semester after they meet with their Academic Advisor during orientation. To be able to enroll in Calculus I or higher level math class, you must be TSI Complete and have one of the following:
- Take the ALEKS Math Placement Exam and meet the passing scores that will place you into Calculus I. Students must take the proctored math placement exam prior to attending Orientation.
- Score 3 or higher on the AP Calculus Exam (Calculus AB or Calculus BC). Bring your AP scores with you when you meet with your Academic Advisor during Orientation.
- Score 50 or higher on the CLEP Precalculus Exam
- Transfer in credits from taking a precalculus course with passing grades either through dual-credit (for freshmen) or transfer work. You must submit your transcript to UTSA.
When you meet with your Academic Advisor during Orientation, please be sure to bring with you a copy of your dual-credit transcripts and AP scores with you.
