After your transcript goes to Admissions, it gets credited under certain guidelines for specific UW course equivalents. Often you may find Math 1XX, 2XX, or other non-specific credit. In order to get these re-evaluated by the Math Department, you will need to petition for official credit. Petition forms are available online here. You will need to provide an unofficial transcript from your previous institution, your UW unofficial transcript (available on MyUW) reflecting the transferred credit, and detailed course information for each Math course you need evaluated. Once an evaluation has been done, your transcripts can then be updated with more specific UW course numbers.
