2016 Mathematics Academy for Transfer Students
The Department of Mathematics is pleased to offer the 2016 Mathematics Academy for Transfer Students, which consists of a fiveweek program from July 30th through September 2nd, where students will enroll in courses as described below. The courses will provide a strong academic foundation so students can
rapidly progress in their degree program at UC San Diego and graduate
sooner. In addition, students will participate in advising and other
activities to ensure a smooth transition to UC San Diego.
Eligibility and How to Apply
All transfer students who are admitted to UC San Diego in Fall 2016 to any major in the Department of Mathematics are eligible to apply to the Mathematics Academy.
Application for admission to the Academy will be open on May 2, 2016. Please consult the 2016 Academy calendar for more details. Students are encouraged to complete the application
as soon as they decide to join UC San Diego.
Courses and Prerequisites
All Mathematics Academy students are required to enroll (through the Academy) in Math 109 (Mathematical Reasoning). If you are a MathCS major, you are required to take CSE 12 (Basic Data Structures and ObjectOriented Design) and CSE 15L(Software Tools and Techniques Laboratory) through the CSE Academy. Otherwise, you are required to take Math 20E (Vector Calculus). The five week program consists of the following courses:
For MathematicsComputer Science Majors
For all other Mathematics Majors
Enrollment in Math 20E requires the completion of a course equivalent to Math 20C (Calculus for Science and Engineering III). Enrollment in Math 109 requires the completion of a course equivalent to Math 20F (Linear Algebra) or Math 31AH (Honors Linear Algebra).
Enrollment in CSE 12 requires the completion of a course equivalent to
either CSE 11 (Introduction to Computer Science and ObjectOriented Programming: Java) or CSE 8B (Introduction to Computer Science: Java II). If you qualify to enroll in CSE 12, you will then automatically qualify to enroll in CSE 15L.
Please consult http://assist.org for checking whether you will have met the relevant prerequisites by August 1, 2016.
