Academic Planning Worksheet: Applied & Computational Mathematical Sciences

Preparation for your intended major is a factor in the review of your UW transfer application. Use this worksheet to help you plan for admission to your intended major and for UW general education requirements.


Department admission information

This major is capacity-constrained. Completion of minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. Applicants are considered in two groups: Currently Enrolled UW Students and Entering Transfers.

Entering Transfers. Transfer applicants must submit a departmental application for the same quarter they submit an application to the University. Applicants must meet the following requirements:

  1. Minimum 30 graded college credits completed by the University transfer application deadline.
  2. Minimum course requirements: A minimum cumulative GPA of at least a 2.5, with a minimum grade of 2.0 in each of the following courses: CSE 142, CSE 143; MATH 124, 125, 126; one from MATH 207, 208, AMATH 351, AMATH 352 with a minimum 2.0 grade in each of these courses and an overall minimum 2.50 GPA in these courses. MATH 134, MATH 135 and MATH 136 may replace MATH 124, MATH 125, MATH 126, MATH 207 and MATH 208.
  3. Determining factors: Factors considered include performance in all degree-related courses as measured by GPA, difficulty of all courses completed, frequency of incompletes or withdrawal grades, number of repeated courses, amount and type of college-level credit, relevant work and life experience, and record of honors.
  4. When to apply: Application deadline: April 5 for autumn admission.
