No, this is not taken into consideration with your math offer, however, you will receive math credit and be placed into the appropriate math course when you meet with your academic advisor during your New Sooner Orientation Day. As long as you send us your official transcript, your math placement will reflect any math transfer credits from other universities or concurrent enrollment. It is very important you send OU your official transcript with any concurrent enrollment credit as soon as possible, so your academic advisor can place you in the appropriate math course, regardless of your initial math offer.
A math offer helps OU students find the correct math placement, which gives them the greatest chance of success at OU.

You can review your math offer after you register for your New Sooner Orientation Day by logging in to your New Sooner Orientation registration confirmation page. Your academic advisor will go over your math offer during your New Sooner Orientation Day.
