### Answers

- I have a C or higher in MATH 163 from the old program. Can I get an exemption for MATH 155?
- Yes. Email Academic Advising with a subject line of "Tech Math Substitution" and in the body of the email say "I believe I can use MATH 163 in place of MATH 155" and they will start the exemption process with you. It's best to email from the email address that is on your student record to prove your identity, since you will not be there in person to show your ID.

- If my exemption request is approved, how will MATH 155 show up on my transcript?
- If your exemption request is successful, a note will be made on your student record. Please be aware that this note will not show as MATH 155 on a transcript, as it is a note in the system allowing other courses to be used in place of MATH 155. You will not be granted credit for 155 as well.

- I have an exemption for MATH 155. Why can't I register for a course that has MATH 155 as a pre-req?
- CAMLINK will not automatically recognize the exemption, as it is a note only on your student record. Therefore, when the pre-requisite checker is on, you will have to register in person. Please tell the person at the registration desk that you have an exemption for MATH 155, so that person knows where to look in your record to check for the pre-req.
