Registering for Fall 2018 Classes in the Math/Stat Department
Advance Registration for Fall 2018 classes:
Starts May 1 for continuing students, June 18 for new admits. Continuing students can view their enrollment appointments in MySJSU starting April 16 and new students can view their enrollment appointments starting June 11. To start with continuing students are usually allowed to enroll in up to 16 units. Starting Friday June 29 Graduating Seniors who filed for graduation by Monday March 19 can enroll for usually up to 19 units. Starting Friday July 6 all continuing students can enroll for usually up to 19 units. Advance registration ends Saturday August 18. Late registration period begins Aug. 21, the first day of instruction. To add a course, students now need to get an add code from their instructor. Last to Drop a Class without a W grade is Friday Aug. 31, to drop a class after this date a late drop petition will be required. Last day to add a class via MySJSU online and without a petition and late fee is Monday, September 10.
Calendar for Summer 2018 registration: 1) April appointments for advance registration posted April 4, 2) advance registration for matriculated students starts April 9, for OU students April 18, advance registration ends May 30. 3) First day of classes June 4, late registration starts.
The Math/Stat Department has workshops for many of its lower division, Math 8W, 19W, 30W, 31W, 32W, 42W, 71W, and 133W. These workshops have noticeably increased the grades and passing rates for students who take the workshop associated with the course. For some courses you are required to sign up for the workshop and the lecture simultaneously. In other courses signing up for the workshop is strictly voluntary.
Required Workshop: If you are registering for Math 19, 30, 30P, 31, or 71 then you must sign up for the workshop and the lecture simultaneously. You can later opt out of the workshop by filling out a workshop opt-out form on the Math Dept website but since students who take the course with the workshop do noticeably better we encourage students to opt out of the workshop only when absolutely necessary.
Voluntary Workshop: If you are registering for Math 8, 32, 42, or 133A then the workshops are strictly voluntary. You can sign up for the workshop or not as you see fit.
If you receive an error message when trying to register for a Math/Stat class it is often one of the following problems.
1) Repeating a class: If you are repeating a class you will need to wait until the first day of class to register. To register at that time you will need to get a add code from your instructor. If you are trying to take a math class for the third time you will also need also to fill out a Repeating a course for two or more times petition which can be found on the Math Dept website.
2) Dept. consent required: Some sections require Math Dept consent to enroll in. What this usually means is that the section will be opened for enrollment only when the other sections of this course are all full and an appropriate instructor can be found. In this case it is probably best to try enrolling in another section that fits your schedule.
3) Mandatory workshop required: If you receive an error message for attempting to enroll in Math 19, 30 or 30P, 31, or 71 remember that you are required to enroll for a lecture section and a workshop simultaneously.
4) Another possible error is trying to enroll for too many units. Make sure that you aren’t exceeding the maximum enrollment cap when you register..
5) If you have any other problems registering for a math class contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Math/Stat Department Advising Reminders for Spring 2018
1) Advising Holds for undergrad Math/Stat majors were placed on March 5. Undergrad Math/Stat majors need to make an appointment to see their advisor for advising. After their advising appointment the advisor can remove the student’s advising hold. Students should receive an email from Dr. Hsu informing them who their advisor is but if you have not received such an email contact Dr. Hsu MH 419 or Dr. Jackson MH 316. If you had a Math/Stat advisor in the fall then your advisor for the spring should be the same person unless you changed your major.
2) This semester we will be testing out a new advising tool called Myplanner so we suggest that you check out Myplanner on MySJSU before you go to your advising meeting with your advisor. You will need to set Myplanner up properly by inputting the number of units you want to take each semester for it to give you a reasonable schedule. You and your advisor can start with the Myplanner schedule and make any appropriate changes during your meeting so using Myplanner might reduce the time required for your mandatory advising meeting. Students should make an effort to finish their advising and getting their advising hold removed by May 1 which is the start of advance registration for Fall 2018 classes for continuing students. Generally students can register for up to 16 units at this time. Students can find their own individual enrollment appointment for registration for Fall 2018 classes on MySJSU starting April 16.
3) Newly admitted students can view their advising appointments on MySJSU starting Monday June 11. Advance Registration for Fall 2018 New Admits begins Monday June 18. New admits who need advising can contact Professor Jackson by email (email@example.com). He will come in for advising roughly once a week during the summer. Newly admitted freshman math majors are required to attend a freshman orientation where they will receive advising, and newly admitted transfer students are required to attend TIP (transfer information program).
4) Deadline for Undergrads to Apply for Spring/Summer/Fall 2018 Graduation Mon. Mar. 19. Starting Friday June 29 Graduating Seniors who filed for graduation by Monday March 19 can enroll for usually up to 19 units. Starting Friday July 6 all continuing students can enroll for usually up to 19 units. Tuesday October 2 is the last day to apply for spring/summer 2019 graduation with 1 semester priority registration, or Fall 2019 graduation with 2 semester priority registration.
5) Friday December 21 Fall 2018 grades due from faculty (preliminary deadline). Tuesday January 1 grades due from Faculty (final deadline).
6) College of Science Advising Center DH 212 (408) 924-5193 Students who are planning to graduate should schedule a graduation workshop at COSAC. Math/Stat majors who are on probation should schedule a probation workshop with Mr. Jason Wong. He can remove a probation hold but he will not remove your major advising hold which must be removed by your Math/Stat advisor. Math/Stat majors who need GE advising can also make an appointment with Mr. Wong.
7) Changing your major to math: If you are interested in changing your major to Math or Stat contact Dr. Jackson for advising. Requirements for changing your major to Math. 1. A C- or better in Calculus I (Math 30 or Math 30P) or AP credit for Calculus I; Students with at least 60 units are also required to have a C- or better in Math 31 and Math 32. (or an approved upper division course). 2) A C- or better in Discrete Math (Math 42); 3) A 2.0 GPA or higher in all mathematics courses taken, Precalculus (Math 19) and above. Change of major form. A change of major form can be found on the office of the registrar website. The form can be dropped off at the math office for approval and to get signed by Dr Blockus. The form can then be returned to the registrar’s office for final approval. Students with more than 90 units who are changing their major must also get approval from AARS.
8) Math minor advising: If you are interested in being a math minor contact Dr. Blockus MH 311 for advising. Math 30 or 30P, 31, 9 units of upper division math are required for a minor in math, at least 12 units of coursework must be completely distinct and separate from the coursework in the major.
