MATH MAJORS/MINORS: (Current or prospective)

  • For early career math majors or minors (taking 100 or 200 level MTH courses), Lyn and Dave 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 Lyn or Dave.
  • 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.
