- 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 156 on a transcript, as it is a note in the system allowing other courses to be used in place of Math 156. You will not be granted credit for 155 as well.

- I have an exemption for Math 156. Why can't I register for a course that has Math 156 as a pre-req?
- CAMLINK will not automatically recognize the exemption, as it is only a note on your student record. Therefore, when the pre-requisite checker is on, you will have to register directly with the Registration department, not on Camlink. Please inform the Registration Officer that you have an exemption for Math 156 noted on your student record, so that person knows where to check for the pre-req.
