Math Advising


This page is about advising for current or prospective math majors and math certificate students. For advice on college algebra, precalculus, and calculus, see the placement advising pages.

Contacting an Advisor (SUMMER)

Advising during summer is handled mostly via email.  There is some limited appointment availablity for digital appointments which you can access via this Starfish link. However, messaging (email) your current advisor (or any of our faculty advisors) will likely be more expedient. Contact information is linked in the list of advisors below.  We are working on upgrading our appointment system for the Fall term to accomodate any campus policy changes during the pandemic.

Before You Contact an Advisor

It is a good idea to run your DARS report before your meeting. For help using DARS, see this helpful page from the Office of the Registrar. If you are not in the College of Letters & Science, you should also bring the major declaration form(s).

What if I don't see the name of my assigned advisor on the list? What if I cannot make it to the office hour of my assigned advisor? 

When you declare the math major or certificate you are assigned an advisor (usually the faculty member who took your application). You can certainly return to that particular advisor if you have further questions about the program (e.g. course selection), but you are also welcome to go to any of the other regular faculty advisors, as they will also be able to help.
