### Undergraduate Program

**1. How do I know if I need to take the ALEKS?**

If you plan to take MTH 1320 or MTH 1321 at Baylor you must take The ALEKS test for both courses, unless you have previously approved credit, or AB credit for Calculus I.

**2. How can I sign up for a closed class?**

Go to BearWeb and sign up on the wait list. This is the only way to get into a closed case. This is not a guarantee that you will get in that section.

**3. How do I sign up for an appointment to take the ALEKS?**

The ALEKS is now online and proctored. Go to the link below to sign up. Read the instructions very carefully as there are two passcodes you will need.

**4. How do I get advised for a Mathematics Major or Minor? **

Our Mathematic advisors are: Dr. Ronald Morgan, Dr. Robert Kirby, Dr. Markus Hunziker & Dr. David Ryden. You may call or email any of these professors for an appointment.

**5. How do I get an override for prerequisite waiver? **

Please be sure you have written permission from a professor before requesting an override. Call or email julie_posey@baylor.edu

**6. How do I get approval to transfer in classes from another institution? **

Go to the Equivalent Course Tool system (ECT). You can just type in ECT in the Baylor search engine and it will take you there.
Pre-approved courses are listed. If your course is not listed at the college you want to attend, then you will need to submit the information online that is asked for.
The exception to this is foreign courses which are not on the list. If you are still having issues, please email your detailed syllabus to John_M_Davis@baylor.edu, our undergraduate director.

**7. What is a degree petition and how is this form used?**

A degree petition lets you substitute one class for another in your major field of study. This is not the form you use to transfer a class to Baylor as an equivalent course.
