I am interested in applying to the University of Michigan and I have questions about requirements. How can I find more information?
All admissions are handled through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Answers to many frequently asked questions as well as contact information can be found there.
I am a high school and/or recently admitted student interested in the Mathematics Department. How should I go about setting up a visit?
Please contact the Math undergraduate office at email@example.com and we will work with you to set up an appointment with one of our faculty, a meeting with one of our current undergrads, and if you’d like, a class visit. We’ll need to know a date, time, any other appointments you have on campus we’ll have to work around, and an area of mathematics you might be interested in.
How do I declare a Mathematics major or minor?
You need to set up an appointment with a math faculty advisor. Appointments can be made online.
I’m graduating soon and am almost done with my Math major or minor. What do I have to do now?
Minors should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and include their UMID and major(s). You’ll need to meet with an advisor to “release” your major. An advisor will go through your transcript with you and sign a form stating you’ve completed your requirements. Appointments can be made online. Don’t forget to also apply for graduation on Wolverine Access.
How do I go about getting permission to register into a course currently “closed” on Wolverine Access?
This depends on the course. If there is a waitlist on Wolverine Access, please add yourself to it.
For Math 105, 115, 116, 215, or 216, you’ll need to contact the undergraduate office for more information. Please e-mail email@example.com.
For all other courses it is best to contact the instructor directly and they can give you further instruction.
How do I set up an appointment with an advisor? Do you have walk-in advising?
We do not have walk-in advising. Appointments can be made online. We also offer career advising!
How do I get my Mathematics Department transfer credit evaluated?
Please visit our transfer credit page for details.
I should have additional AP credits posted on my transcript but I don’t see anything posted yet. What should I do?
The Registrar’s Office runs this as a batch process sometime after the next term begins. If you still don’t see the credits posted by 6 weeks after the end of the term in which you took your first math course, please contact the Registrar’s Office directly.
How would I find a math tutor? Do tutors assist middle or high school students?
This math tutor list includes those tutors interested in assisting middle or high school students. For U of M students, the free “Math Lab” located in B860 East Hall, offers tutoring up through Math 217.
Does the Mathematics Department offer a research program for students?
The Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program runs every summer for U.S. citizens or permanent residents. This program is now open to non U-M students as well. Applications are usually available in February and due in March.
