Math Majors Become Capped - Fall 2016

Effective Fall 2016, all undergraduate majors in the Department of Mathematics will become Capped.  This means that we will have enrollment targets for new and continuing students, and that any student not currently a math major (or not directly admitted into a math major) will need to first complete screening courses to change to a math major.  For more information, please go HERE (PDF).
