Application Instructions

The preferred academic background for applicants to the program is an undergraduate degree in mathematics. However, non-mathematics majors whose undergraduate degree is strongly related to mathematics, (for example, electrical or mechanical engineering, computer science, secondary education with mathematics, physics, etc.), are also encouraged to apply.

Students who do not hold an undergraduate degree in mathematics or who have not completed the equivalent of four years of university studies in mathematics may be granted provisional admission to the program. Depending on their background in mathematics, they will then be required to complete certain undergraduate mathematics courses to be reclassified to full standing.  Courses typically required for reclassification include part or all of our Abstract Algebra sequence (MATH 5010/5020) and part or all of our Advanced Calculus sequence (MATH 5110/5120).  Please contact Dr. Allan Mills, Chair, at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it if you have any questions related to your background and its suitability for admission to our Graduate program.
