Course Equivalency

Summer 2019 Course Equivalency Instructions

For Non-U.C. Berkeley Lower-Division Mathematics Courses


Students who have taken lower-division Math courses at California community colleges should use to determine the equivalency of their courses to UC Berkeley's lower-division Math courses. These instructions are for students who have taken lower-division Math courses at other 4-year colleges or at Community colleges outside of California and who 1) are intending to major in Math/Applied Math or 2) who have been asked by their intended major departments to see the Math Department for a course equivalency determination. (Note that the Admissions office determines unit transferability for non-Berkeley courses.)

All course materials must be presented via email.

When emailing with the Summer Course Equivalency Advisor to determine course equivalency, include:

  1. A detailed syllabus/course outline showing which sections of the book were covered.
  2. The table of contents for the textbook.

Course Outlines for Berkeley’s Math 1A, 1B, 10A, 10B, 16A, 16B, 53, 54, and 55 are posted here. You can (and should) review and compare topics and hours of lecture per topic with the course you have completed before requesting a course equivalency evaluation. The evaluations will be done by email alone; the details are given below.
