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.

DROP-IN ADVISING:

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

  • FALL TERM DROP-IN ADVISING HOURS:
      Mon: 9-10 & 12:30-1:30 Tues: 9-10 & 12:30-1:30 Wed: 9-10 & 12:30-1:30 Thurs: 9-10 Fri: 12:30-1:30

REQUEST AN ADVISING APPOINTMENT:

If you have questions, or want to contact an advisor directly, you can send an email to UnderGradInfo@math.oregonstate.edu. To contact an advisor by phone, please call the main office in the Math Department at 541-737-4686.

The answers you seek may also be found in the Undergraduate Advising: FAQ.

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. Please follow the following guidelines to find your advisor:
    • If you are in one of the four options (Applied & Computational Mathematics, Mathematical Biology, Secondary Teaching Emphasis or Statistics option), please contact that specific option's advisor, as noted in the table below.
    • If you are in the standard degree (no option) and also in the Actuarial Science minor, please contact Prof. Thomann (for contact information see below).
    • If you are in the standard degree and not in Actuarial Science minor, please contact the advisor corresponding to your last name as noted in the table below.
