The Mathematics Department offers personalized academic advising for all OSU students, including undergraduate math majors and non-majors.

Professional Advisors are available during drop-in advising hours or by appointment and can provide a broad variety of advising services, including assistance with scheduling, lower division program planning, and signatures on a variety of forms such as change-of-major or add-a-minor forms.


For services such as signing S/U forms, questions about course transfer credits, etc.

MATH MAJORS/MINORS: (Current or prospective)

  • For early career math majors or minors (taking 100 or 200 level MTH courses), professional advisors offer program and scheduling advice, and can provide signatures (e.g. change of major/minor forms) and registration PINs. Please use this form to make an appointment with an advisor.
  • Students who are taking 300 and 400 level MTH courses should consult with a member of the Undergraduate Advising Committee. These are the tenure/tenure-track faculty members listed below. These professors can help you with questions about your program, provide signatures or registration PINs, and work with you on career and graduate school planning. You are free to consult with any advisor, but you are nominally assigned to an advisor based on the first letter of your last name, as below.


  • Anyone interested in actuarial courses, exams, internship and career possibilities, or the minor program should visit with Dr. Yevgeniy Kovchegov.
