Advising for Mathematics Students

Incoming freshmen and transfer students should apply directly to the university and indicate the choice of college and major on their applications.

Incoming freshmen frequently ask questions about AP and Proficiency Exams, Math Placement Results, and Calculus at Illinois.

Advisers for Math Majors and Minors

Generally speaking a student transferring into Mathematics should have completed, or be able to complete, the calculus and at least one advanced mathematics course with a 2.5 average by the end of the sophomore year. Lower grades would indicate that the student would have difficulty in completing the advanced coursework successfully. The Teacher Education Option in Mathematics has specific requirements. Students wishing to complete a Mathematics Minor should obtain a form for declaring Intent to Complete a Minor from their college office, and have it signed by the undergraduate mathematics adviser.

Teacher Education in Mathematics

Admission to all Teacher Education programs is by application once a year. Students should apply in their sophomore year. Applications are available from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences or from the College of Education, 110 Education Building. They should be submitted by February 1st for admission the following fall. Before applying, students are expected to have completed the calculus sequence and one advanced mathematics course (preferably Math 347-Fundamental Mathematics), in addition to significant non-mathematical requirements.
