The UAccess system can "overlook" some of your prerequisites in the following instances:

  1. The system looks to the first time you received credit for the prerequisite course.  For example, suppose you are trying to enroll in Math 223, which requires a grade of C or higher in Math 129. However, on your first attempt of Math 129 you received a D. Since this is a passing grade, you received credit, but you didn't meet the prerequisites. Even after you have passed Math 129 on further attempts with a grade of C or better, the system doesn't see past the first attempt. Ask for assistance in Math 108 as our staff can add a milestone so the system can recognize the prerequisite credit.
  2. If your prerequisite material was transferred in more than 3 semesters ago, the material is outdated, and you may be required to re-take the placement exam. If you end up testing below the level you were expecting, you should contact placement@math.arizona.edu for advising.
  3. If your prerequisite material was transferred in, the system may just not be recognizing it.  Ask for assistance in Math 108 as our staff can add a milestone so the system can recognize the prerequisite credit.


You might also have a hold on your account, as shown by a negative service indicator (red circle with a slash through it) in the upper right-hand corner of your UAccess screen. Click on the icon to see which hold it it is.
