Advising

The Department of Mathematical Sciences is committed to providing a supportive, welcoming environment for students. We realize a positive college experience goes hand in hand with individualized academic advising, which is why each degree concentration in our program has a dedicated advisor. If you are contemplating a career in math, make an appointment today and see for yourself why current students say the department feels like a family. Unsure of which concentration will suit you? Contact Mark Gockenbach, department chair, for advising.

In addition to assisting students with selecting a major, scheduling courses, and addressing other academic concerns, academic advisors are a resource for information about co-ops and internships, academic policies and procedures, and campus resources, including tutoring assistance.
