If you ARE NOT currently a math major, please do not use this system to make an appointment, or your appointment will be cancelled.  Instead, please send your inquiries to This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you ARE a current math major, please read the instructions below before making your appointment or your appointment will be cancelled:


Welcome to the Math Undergraduate Advising Office Online Appointment System (OAS), which will be operational beginning Thursday, October 17, 2019, until Friday December 6, 2019, for ***current*** math majors so that current math majors may get advised and sign up for Spring 2020 courses.

Current math majors, please note that in order for you to meet your math advising requirement, you will need to complete the following steps, in the following order:

1) find out when your registration appointment will be. This information should be available on Testudo (or your UM portal) beginning Friday, October 4, 2019.

2) as soon as you have found out when your registration appointment is, request an advising appointment (with Kate or me) using this system (OAS). The advising appointment you request should be NO MORE THAN 7 calendar days in advance of your registration appointment, or your advising appointment will be canceled

3) beginning October 4, 2019, bring your student I.D. and stop by MTH1117 to pick up your advising packet. You will need to bring this packet to all your advising appointments (see #4 and #5 below).

4) if you have taken, are taking, or plan to take any 400-level MATH/STAT/AMSC courses, you will need to have faculty adivisng (i.e., advised by a math faculty member) before seeing Kate or me. You are welcome to ask any math faculty member for advising availability. Your faculty advisor will complete the blue sheet, which you will find attached to the advising packet.

5) advising appointments with Kate and me are available on a first-come, first-served, basis. Nevertheless, if your registration appointment has passed, and if you have had faculty advising already (if you are required to have one), you may try to catch us between appointments, beginning the day after your registration appointment. While we will try our best to squeeze you in, there is no guarantee that we will be able to see you, as priority will be given to students who have made appointments with us.

6) please refer to Testudo for periodic updates, as you may not receive additional notice regarding changes in room or instructor.

7) as usual, if you feel stressed or overwhelmed, please do feel free to stop by anytime.  No appointmemt is necessary.

Thank you all in advance for your cooperation so that we may have another smooth advising season!
