Your math faculty advisor can help you:
- Choose appropriate math classes to meet your math graduation requirements.
- Assist you in deciding upon which area of math in which to specialize.
- Provide you with career advice.
- Suggest core sequence and course scheduling.
Math faculty advisors cannot help you with university and CLAS policies and procedures such as:
- Core (non-math) requirements
- Transfer credit evaluation for core requirements
- Academic warning and probation
- Residency requirements
- Graduation paperwork
For questions regarding math transfer credits, see the Math Major FAQs.
Undergraduate students who do not currently have an advisor:
Please call the Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences, 303-315-1700, and the department will assign you an initial advisor. If you have an idea about what area of math interests you, let us know, and that will help us match you with an advisor. After you have taken enough classes to know what area of math interests you, you may change your advisor to a faculty member in that area (see the next item for how to change advisors).
If you cannot recall who your advisor is, please call the Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences, 303-315-1700, and we will be able to help you. If you would like to change advisors, you can:
- Ask your potential new advisor if he or she could be your new advisor;
Faculty set aside time to meet with advisees several times a year. Once you have an advisor, you should receive e-mails several times a year that will inform you when your advisor is available to meet with you. Alternately, you can stop by your advisor's office to see if your advisor is available, or e-mail your advisor to set up an appointment. All faculty e-mail addresses are available on our directory page.
Once every semester, the department hosts an advising session for Math major and minors. You can also contact the front desk of the department to inquire about setting up an advising appointment with a faculty member.
