 Undergraduate Advising

If you are having trouble registering for a Math Course, please contact math@math.ubc.ca or call 604-822-2666. Do Not Contact an Academic Advisor for help with Registration Issues. They are to be contacted for Academic Advising only.

The Frequently Asked Questions below covers a wide range of common questions on a diverse set of topics. If your question is not in this FAQ and does not relate to registration issues, contact the appropriate individual on the Advisor Contact Information list below based on the nature of your inquiry.

The department holds an annual Mathematics Information Session in March and maintains a page of material and links that are discussed at the session.

Frequently Asked Questions - Promotion

  1. Promotion is considered in May of each year. If students satisfy all requirements for promotion, they are notified of their new status sometime before the end of summer (usually August). Students can be promoted directly from 2nd to 4th year provided all requirements are met. Details for BSc students are available in the Calendar under Promotion Requirements. Program specific requirements for BSc mathematics:
    • The MATH 220/226 requirement must be satisfied before promotion to 3rd year is granted.
    Other common inquiries:
    • CPSC 111/211 (along with all 1st,2nd year requirements) must be completed before promotion to 4th year.
