Which office should I contact?

The Math Center is home to advising for majors and minors in either Mathematics or Statistics & Data Science.  

Students needing assistance with math enrollment, transfer credit, placement, or other issues not necessarily relating to our majors or minors may stop by the Math Academic Office window at room 108 of the Math building during business hours. The academic office's email is; phone:  (520) 626-9837; click here to access their knowledge base.  

Contact the Math Center By Email:  

Email - Math Center staff check messages frequently throughout the day when offices are open. 

There is also an online form for submitting a question.


We have an online appointment scheduling tool.  (See the Schedule an Advising Appointment link along the top portion of any page within this knowledge base.) Within the scheduling tool, you may select an available appointment time, and it is immediately reserved for you. 

Drop-in advising:  

Have a quick question?  Check the Math Center calendar to see if drop-in hours are available.  

Declaring a major in Math or Statistics & Data Science:

To declare one of our majors, please begin by completing our online information session (see link on left side of this page). At the end of the information session, you will be directed to see an advisor to officially declare the major and/or have any remaining questions answered.

Students who have completed the information session may either come to drop-in advising hours to declare (if they have decided on the degree - BA or BS, major - Math or SDS, and have minimal questions) or may make an appointment. An appointment is necessary if the student wants to further discuss their choices, or has more significant questions than can be handled in a brief drop-in session. 

Majors can only be declared during drop-in hours if the student has previously completed the information session or met with one of our advisors to discuss the requirements.

Math department minor changes:  

Want to add or remove one of our minors (math, SDS, or math education)?  Submit your request here.  

Additional information:

All of our online forms also feed into the messages.  The first available staff member who is able to answer your submission will get back to you.  Whenever possible, we try to reply by the next business day (if not sooner).

Since our staff are frequently in appointments with students or meetings and unable to answer the phone, calling the Math Center is not recommended unless a phone appointment has been previously reserved.

 Note:  many questions are answered already in our knowledge base; please use the "What are you looking for?" search box to see if you can get an immediate answer.
