Update to Math Capped Screening Criteria

Students, please note the following change to our Math Capped Screening Criteria management:

As of the Winter 2020 Application Period, Joint Math-Econ majors under the Department of Economics (EN28) will be subject to the same Screening Criteria as all other students not directly admitted to one of our Math majors. EN28 majors must complete the five required courses with a C- or higher and with a minimum GPA of 3.0 in those five courses before being eligible to apply to the Math Department. 

The Winter 2020 Capped Application Period will open on 11/9/19

Fall 2019 Capped Applications

The FA19 Capped Applications are open.

Eligible students who are not currently declared under the Department of Mathematics and wish to change their major will be able apply to any of the eight Math Majors using this link:

Eligible students are those who have already completed all five screening courses and have final grades posted on their Academic History. Do not submit an application if you have not yet completed the screening courses. More information on eligibility can be found here:

Note: Students who are looking to Double Major should not use the online application. Instead, they can apply using a Double Major Petition
