Registration Issues

We will no longer hold in-person Registration Assistance Sessions
as of 2013 WINTER, TERM 2 (January 2014)

If you are not able to register in a Math course,

e-mail Mathematics Undergraduate Chair, Professor Mark Mac Lean at ugradchair@math.ubc.ca. 

Include your full name as it appears on your UBC account, UBC student number, desired course number and section number.


  • If you are only dropping a Math course and not adding or switching sections, please do so on-line.
  • Math instructors do not have the authority to sign you into their section. 
  • Section sizes are not determined by the number of chairs/desks in a classroom but by a student/instructor ratio determined by the Department.


Before e-mailing, please read the important information below to determine if your reason for requesting registration assistance is valid or invalid.


VALID REASONS FOR ASSISTED REGISTRATION CHANGE

1.  All Sections that Fit Your Timetable are Full.
2.  Employment Responsibilities:  You must have written documentation from your employer, on company stationery, outlining your work schedule. Please scan and email this documentation to ugradchair@math.ubc.ca. You may be asked to produce the original.
3Varsity Athletic Commitments:  You must have a letter from your coach, stating dates and times of commitments. Please scan and email this documentation to ugradchair@math.ubc.ca.
4.  A Conflict Between a Math Course and Another Course.


INVALID REASONS FOR ASSISTED REGISTRATION CHANGE

1.  Wanting to be in the Same Section as a Friend:  If you want to be in the same section as a friend, you will have to arrange that yourself on-line, subject to available space in the section in question.
2.  Instructor Preferences:  All Math Instructors are qualified and experienced.  If you want a specific instructor, you will have to arrange that on-line, subject to available space in the section in question.  Please note that Math instructors do not have the authority to sign students into their sections.
3.  Wanting a Day Off or More Compact or Spread Out Schedule:  If the reason you want to change your schedule is because Math is the only class you have on a given day, you will have to keep trying on-line to re-arrange your schedule, subject to available space.  The same is true for a schedule that is too spread out or not spread out enough to suit you.



N.B.: REGARDING TERM 2 CALCULUS COURSES


1.  Math 184 in Term 2 is only open to students in the BCOM program.
2.  Math 180 in Term 2 is only open to students in Applied Science at this time.
