How faculty advisors can help

    Departmental advisor (Kate Lewis) 

    How the departmental advisor can help

    • Assisting with the same items as faculty advisors
    • APAS questions
    • Addition or removal of a Math specialization
    • Academic policy questions
    • Math minor declaration
    • BA Math major declaration (all except actuarial science specialization)
    • Probation review (CSE math majors)
    • Transfer student orientation

      Scheduling: What to keep in mind

      • We encourage scheduling appointments in advance because slots fill quickly, especially during peak times of the semester.
      • Same-day appointments are not available.

      CSE Math majors have a DS hold on their record 

      • This ensures students are seen for advising and course planning at least once per academic year.
      • The DS hold is advanced, not removed, based on course planning.
      • Pay close attention to the effective term associated with the DS hold.
