Academic advising is a collaborative educational process in which students and their advisers are partners in meeting the essential learning outcomes that support student success. This partnership requires participation and involvement of both the adviser and the student and spans the student’s whole educational experience.
Portland State utilizes both professional and faculty advisers in delivering advising for students.
Faculty advisers support students with questions about the math major, which may also include potential careers and professional opportunities within the discipline. It is important that math majors meet with a faculty adviser prior to registering for math/stat courses in order to develop a coherent program to achieve the students’ goals.

Professional Pathway Advisers
Professional advisers are available to assist with university general education (University Studies) and degree requirements, assist with academic standing issues and petitions, and provide referrals to various campus services. For questions about BS/BA requirements, UNST courses/senior capstone, minors (other than math), and petitions, please contact your assigned Pathway adviser. If you are a math major or math minor, your pathway is ECSMP (Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics Pathway).
