Frequently Asked Questions

When can I add the minor?

Math is a minor where students are expected to complete some of the coursework prior to adding the minor. Students must complete MATH 241, and at least one 400-level MATH course with a grade of C+ or higher before applying.

The deadline to declare a minor is the start of your final semester at Illinois (i.e., the beginning of the semester when you will graduate).

I'm pursuing a minor in mathematics and would like to use ECE 313/MATH 362 toward the math minor. The course is comparable to STAT 410; they are substitutable in the ECE curriculum. Would this be possible?

Maybe. The following conditions must be met in order to complete a course substitution form for ECE 313:

  • MATH 461, MATH 463/STAT 400, or MATH 469/STAT 420 are not being applied towards your math minor;
  • you have at least 6 hours of 300/400-level classes for the math minor (which you are NOT using for your major and which you do NOT need to satisfy tech electives)

If your situation meets the above conditions, please contact the undergraduate advising office for assistance with completing a substitution form. We will need to know your full name, UIN, and which courses you will not use toward your major/tech electives. All course substitutions must be approved by the Director of Undergraduate Studies.

Note: Please contact us only once you have started the 6 hours of advanced courses required for the minor.

Are there any registration privileges for students pursuing a math minor?

The mathematics minor provides no registration privileges and no guarantee that you will be able to get all of the classes that you need to complete your minor in four years. Please see item # 3 in the Statement of Intent to Pursue a Campus-Approved Minor:
