Declaring Math as a Major

Registrar's Information About Declaring a Major (Spring 2018)

A.B. students entering the junior year must officially declare a concentration prior to fall semester course selection, during a time period determined by the Registrar's Office, in mid-April.

Departmental Approval:

  • The department usually holds a Sophomore Open House for prospective majors in early April. Check the Announcements section for details.
  • Before submitting a concentration on the registrar's web site, you must first obtain approval of the department.
  • Make an appointment with the Departmental Representative or one of the designated math major advisors to discuss your plans.  (Contact details are available from the math majors section of this web site.) This is a very good opportunity to discuss the courses you plan to take in your junior year and to begin planning for your senior independent work.
  • Take two copies of the Course Enrollment Worksheet to this meeting as well as a copy of your course history printout (Go to TigerHub>Student Center>My Academics>View My Course History).  You will need to give the course history printout and one copy of the Course Enrollment Worksheet to the Undergraduate Administrator, LeeAnn Coleman, in Fine 315.
  • Concentration Declaration:  When the departmental approval process is complete, you are ready to declare your concentration by going to the Concentration Declaration web page on the Registrar's web site.
  • You must declare your concentration before you are allowed to select fall term courses for your junior year.
