I already have math credit from another
institution. Do I have to take the Clemson
Math Placement Test (CMPT)? Can I use
a math course completed at my previous
institution to meet a course prerequisite?
What if the math course(s) is (are) not listed
on my academic record at the beginning of
the semester?
No. If a math course completed at another
institution is the equivalent of a Clemson
prerequisite course, it may be used to satisfy
a prerequisite requirement. If you plan to
use math transfer credit from a previous
institution to meet a Clemson prerequisite,
that credit must be posted to your Clemson
academic record at the beginning of
the semester.
