All information on this page regards mathematics courses offered in Spring 2023. For full information on section offerings, see Course Explorer

Some course information will vary by section. See section notes for more details.  

 

Restriction Lift Dates

Several undergraduate and graduate courses contain restrictions during the regular registration period, to ensure that students who have completed the registration requirements will have the best chance at successfully registering for their preferred courses. Some of these restrictions will be lifted later in the registration period. The following table shows which dates restrictions will be lifted for a given course. Please pay attention to the section number for a given course.

Special Course Types

 

Merit Courses

The Merit Program provides an interactive group learning environment for selected students. For general information regarding the Merit Program, consult the Merit Program website.

Registration in Math Merit sections requires approval from the Math Merit Director (see contact information below). Concurrent enrollment for 1 hour of credit in the Merit Section of Math 199 is required for Math 220, Math 221, Math 231 and Math 241.

Honors Courses

The department offers the three following honors mathematics courses to undergraduate students:

  • Honors MATH 347
  • Honors MATH 416
  • MATH 425

Students interested in taking mathematics honors courses should have A grades in prior coursework and must obtain approval from the undergraduate advising team to register for honors courses. To express interest in registering for these courses, email mathadvising@illinois.edu using the subject line “Honors course request: [347/416/425]” (please specify which course you'd like to take). In the same email, include your name, UIN, netID, the reason for your interest, and your qualifications for applying to the honors course.

 

Undergraduate Topics Courses

Course offerings in undergraduate-level mathematics topics are as follows:

  • MATH 199, Conversations in Mathematics (Undergraduate Open Seminar)
    This course is for those who wish to experience mathematics through experimentation, reflection, intuition, and conversation. We will explore a number of provocative, interesting, and important ideas from the canon of mathematics. The goal of this course is to offer the student memorable, lifelong topics of conversations about math. Assessment will be through evaluation of student journal entries. For Chancellor's Scholars only; other may only enroll with the consent of the instructor and the Campus Honors Program.
     
  • MATH 490, Computational Mathematics
    (Course description forthcoming)

 

Graduate Topics Courses

Course offerings in graduate-level mathematics topics are as follows:

  • MATH 595 TV, .5 Toric Varieties – Prof. Sheldon Katz
  • MATH 595 GAM, Geometric Analysis – Prof. Gabriele La Nave
  • MATH 595 TQF, Topological Quantum Field Theory – Prof. Gabriele La Nave
  • MATH 595 LTG, Lagrangian Torus Fibrations – Prof. Joey Palmer
  • MATH 595 SM, Sieve Methods – Prof. Kevin Ford
  • MATH 595 OS, Operator System Theory – Prof. Roy Araiza
  • MATH 595 INC, Integrable Combinatorics – Prof. Philippe Di Francesco
  • MATH 595 LC, Local Cohomology – Prof. Sankar Dutta
  • MATH 595 QC, Quantum Channels – Prof. Felix Leditzky

 

 

Special Course Requests

 

Graduate Students May Request to Take a 400-Level Course for 4 Credits

Many 400-level MATH classes are offered as 3-credit sections by default, but some may have a 4-credit option available to graduate students, at the instructor’s discretion. Please note that the inclusion of a 4-credit section on the timetable does not guarantee that the instructor will be offering a 4-credit option.

Graduate students requesting the 4 credit hour section must first register for the 3 hour section. If the instructor is willing to offer extra work to graduate students for the 4-hour section, students can fill out the request form between the first day of the semester and the 8th week of the semester at this link:     https://go.math.illinois.edu/3to4credit

 

Undergraduate Students May Request to Take a 500-Level Course

Undergraduate students who are interested in taking a graduate mathematics course should first have completed significant work at the 400-level with A or A+ grades. To request approval to take a graduate MATH course, please email math-undergrad-director@illinois.edu using the subject line “Undergraduate requesting a graduate course.” The same email should include your name, netID, UIN, the course you're requesting to take, the CRN of the course requested, and reason for your request.

Note that for some classes, including MATH 500 and MATH 540, review may be delayed to ensure that students in mathematics graduate programs are able to register for the classes they need. Review may also be delayed if the current semester’s class grades are needed for the review.
