Lower division advisors

For early career math majors or minors (taking 100- or 200-level MTH courses), lower division advisors offer program and scheduling advice, and can provide signatures (e.g. change of major/minor forms) and registration PINs.

Upper-division advisors

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 above. 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 contact the advisor corresponding to your last name as noted in the table below (including if you are in the Actuarial Science minor).
