The Math Advising Center

The Undergraduate Math Major Advising Center, known simply as The Math Center, supports our undergraduate mathematics degree programs. The Math Center provides advising to math majors and minors on course selection and program requirements. Additionally, we organize events for undergraduates and provide facilities for undergraduate activities including the MathCats student club.

Not sure whom to contact?

Math Majors/Minors, contact the Math Center.

Otherwise, ask the Academic Office, and we'll point you in the right direction.
