Transfer Students Coming to NYU
Welcome to the NYU Mathematics Department! Transfer students will find all of the information they need to help get started below:
 Calculus Placement
 Transfer Course Equivalencies
 Transfer Courses: Major Credit
 Major Requirements
 Math Advising
 Activities & Research
While the Math Department may evaluate courses for equivalency, all students must consult their home school adviser/advising teams to determine if their school's transfer credit policy permits them to transfer in the course for credit. Even if the Math Department approves a course for equivalency, a student's home school transfer credit policy may not allow for the course to be transferred in. Students must always consult with their home school advising team first before enrolling in a course outside NYU.
Calculus Placement
Students who are new to mathematics and not sure where to begin their coursework should refer to the Calculus Information page. This page will help guide students into the appropriate calculus course. If needed, students can register for one of our Calculus Placement Exams.
If you receive transfer course credit for Calculus, you are eligible to register directly into the next course in the Calculus sequence.
 If you receive transfer course credit for Calculus I, you can register directly for Calculus II.
 If you receive transfer course credit for Calculus I & II, you can register directly for Calculus III.
Transfer Course Equivalencies
Once transfer students have matriculated at NYU, an initial Transfer Credit Report will be generated and can be accessed via NYU Albert, the electronic student system. All transfer credits will be listed as tentative until final High School and College transcripts are received by NYU.
Initially, all math courses will be equated to either COREUA credit or Elective Credit. In order to receive MATHUA course credit, the Mathematics Department must determine if the course(s) students completed at their previous institution(s) are equivalent to our courses here at NYU. To check transfer course equivalencies, students should contact one of our advisement team and attach a copy of their unofficial transcript(s) with all previous math course grades:
Students whose last (family) name begins with letters A–M should contact Adam Staszczuk, Assistant Director, Academic Affairs, at adamstas@cims.nyu.edu
Students whose last (family) name begins with letters N–Z, should contact Jackie Tucciarone, Program Administrator, at jt4787@nyu.edu
Our advisors will check to see if we have already reviewed your course(s) before, and will be able to let you know if they are equivalent. For any courses not previously reviewed, the advisor will have you submit the course syllabus, which must show a list of textbooks used and a weekly breakdown of topics covered, into an internal form to be evaluated. They will then have math faculty review each syllabus for equivalency, and will advise on the MATHUA course credit(s) to be received. Transfer courses that are to be counted toward major or optional minor requirements must be judged equivalent to courses currently offered by the mathematics department. With the exception of courses taught online due to the COVID19 pandemic, credit cannot be transferred for courses in which a majority of the assessment is conducted in a distancelearning environment.
The mathematics department can only evaluate mathematics courses for equivalency and transfer credit. Transfer students should contact the corresponding departments for each nonmath course to be evaluated.
Transfer Courses: Major Credit
No more than half of a major can be completed with transfer course credits, the remainder of the courses must be taken at NYU. For the Math Major which requires 13 courses, only 6 math courses can be completed with transfer credit. For the Joint Math and Economics Major which requires 9 math courses, only 6 math courses and a total of 9 courses for the entire joint major can be completed with transfer credit. For the Joint Math and Data Science Major which requires 9 math courses, only 6 math courses and a total of 9 courses for the entire joint major can be completed with transfer credit. For the Joint Math and Computer Science Major which requires 10 math courses, only 6 math courses and a total of 9 courses for the entire joint major can be completed with transfer credit.
If a student happens to have more than half of the major credits equivalent from transfer courses, they will still be able to use them for placement/prerequisite purposes and possibly towards their 128 graduation credits, but they will not be able to count towards their major requirements.
Major Requirements
For a complete list of all Math Major Requirements, Guidelines, and Math Major Checklists, please visit the Major and Minor Requirements page.
Students who are interested in the Math Major Honors Program should visit the Honors Program page.
For details on how to declare a Math Major, students should visit the Declaring a Major or Minor page.
Math Advising
For all matters concerning undergraduate advisement in mathematics, students should contact one of our advisement team.
Students whose last (family) name begins with letters A–M should contact Adam Staszczuk, Assistant Director, Academic Affairs, at adamstas@cims.nyu.edu
Students whose last (family) name begins with letters N–Z, should contact Jackie Tucciarone, Program Administrator, at jt4787@nyu.edu
All Math Major Transfer Students will receive an assigned Math Faculty Advisor a few weeks before registering for their second semester at NYU.
More information and links to useful resources can be found on our Advisement page.
Activities & Research
The Mathematics Department offers students many opportunities to get involved with math outside of the classroom. These opportunities include the Math Major Peer Mentor Program, the Summer Undergraduate Research Experience, Math Competitions, The Math Society, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics NYU Chapter, and the Association for Women in Mathematics. Information on all of these great opportunities, and others, can be found on the Activities & Research page. We encourage all transfer students to get involved!
