Permission to Add a Math Course

Students may wish to add a Math course that requires permission. The Department of Mathematics has different procedures depending on the reason that permission is required.

Visiting Students and Non-Degree Seeking Students

Students enrolled at OSU not pursuing a degree wishing to enroll in a math course should visit Visiting Students for instructions to enroll in math courses.


Enter a Course Requiring Permission 

Students requesting permission to add a math course for any other reason must request permission from the Math Advising Office.

  • Students may request permission to add a course by emailing the Math Advising Office or in person during Walk-in hours.
  • Students that request permission to add a course for nontraditional reasons may be requested to file a Math Registration Petition. Students should first discuss their situation with the Math Advising Office.
