Course Transfer Policy
Transferring courses from other institutions:
The final authority for approval of a transfer course lies with the Office of the Registrar. Work taken to complete common curriculum requirements requires prior consultation with and approval of the Registrar's Office. Work taken to complete major requirements requires prior consultation and approval of the department chair.
However, that decision is generally made in consultation with the appropriate department or program.
In order to decide whether or not to recommend that a course be accepted for transfer from another institution as equivalent to a CSB/SJU mathematics course, the department uses the following considerations:
 Does the transfer course have the same or similar prerequisites as the CSB/SJU course?
 Has the student met those prerequisites?
 Does the transfer course have the same or similar content as the CSB/SJU course?
 Does the transfer course use a textbook which is at the same level as the CSB/SJU course?
 If the transfer course is intended to meet the common curriculum requirement, does it meet the common curriculum learning goals for mathematics, which are listed below:
 Students will apply mathematical techniques to solve problems in a specific area of mathematics.
 Students will demonstrate an understanding of the mathematical principles which underlie the techniques they use.
 Students will demonstrate an understanding of mathematical concepts in a specific area of mathematics.
 Students will model problems from other disciplines or everyday life by applying mathematical techniques.
Online and distance learning courses:
Because the department strongly believes that classroom discussion and direct interaction among faculty and students is the best context for achieving these learning goals, we discourage online courses. However we also understand that sometimes that is the only feasible option. In those cases, however, we will not recommend acceptance of the course unless all required examinations and quizzes are taken offline and are proctored.
Procedure:
If you wish to transfer a mathematics course from another institution to CSB/SJU, please
 Contact the Mathematics Department Chair well in advance of registering for the course
 Be prepared to provide the chair with the following information about this course: institution, course description, text to be used and chapters covered in that text.
Note that some courses have already been approved for transfer as Math 124. They are listed below. The list will be updated from time to time. TRANSFER COURSES ARE IN THE PROCESS OF BEING REEVALUATED. A LIST OF APPROVED WILL BE POSTED SOON.
