Direct Admission

Students interested in mathematics will be admitted unconditionally to the University and will be admitted directly to the Buchtel College of Arts and Sciences if they meet certain academic requirements. These requirements, which have been established by calling the Office of Admissions, Students admitted directly will be advised by a faculty member in this college. Undecided students will be admitted to University College to begin their studies before deciding on a major and will be advised by an academic adviser in the University College.
