 Undergraduate Advising

If you are having trouble registering for a Math Course, or the information here need to be updated, please contact the undergraduate chair via the Advising Contact Form. 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.
