​Each Mathematics major is assigned a department faculty member as their academic advisor. If you have declared a major in Mathematics but do not yet have an assigned academic advisor, contact the Department Chair Dr. Kyle Petersen (​ to schedule an appointment to discuss who might be an appropriate academic advisor for you.

Mathematics majors should meet with their academic advisors at least once per quarter to discuss course scheduling and other issues. If you haven't met with your academic advisor in a while and need to look up their name or contact information, you can retrieve that information through Campus Connect​.

Your college staff advisor is listed in Campus Connect. Click on the Student Center tab and your advisor should be in right column. If you do not have a college staff advisor assigned, contact the CSH Office of Advising and Student Services.

All Actuarial Science, Data Science, and Mathematical Sciences majors and minors should have a faculty academic advisor. Contact the department chair if you do not already have a faculty academic advisor.

Your faculty academic advisor will be listed on Campus Connect and on your Course History Report. Log on to Campus Connect and click on For Students, then click on View My Advisors.

You will be able to request your Course History Report and view it online, save it to your computer, and/or email it to your advisor. If you know your advisor's name but not his or her email, go to the mathematics department directory to search by name for faculty contact information.

That depends on the new concentration and/or advisor. In many cases it is advisable to change to an advisor within the concentration, but this is not mandatory.

You should talk to your faculty academic advisor about all of your goals, even if they end up changing. For example, if you think you might want to pursue a graduate degree in mathematics, your faculty academic advisor can help you determine your specific interests, and can help to tailor your course plan to prepare you appropriately for graduate work.

You can ask the department chair for clarification of any issue.

You can always ask the department chair to assign you a new advisor.
