Help for Undergrads

  • Enrol here.
  • Course restrictions on fall and full-year courses are now lifted. Course restrictions on winter courses will lift at 11:59 PM on 13 January, 2021, and you may be able to enrol then.
  • If you still can't enrol into a course after restrictions have been lifted, then you should contact the instructor by email and ask for permission to enrol.
  • The last day to add a course WITHOUT instructor permission is September 22, 2020 for F2020 and Y2020-2021.
  • The last day to add a course WITH instructor permission is October 6, 2020 for F2020 and October 27, 2020 for Y2020-2021.
  • Check the important dates for adding and dropping courses.
  • If you miss a test/assignment due to a valid medical emergency, please contact your course instructor directly. Each individual course has specific procedures and rules that you must follow, and it is your responsibility to be aware of them.
  • If you miss a final exam due to a valid medical emergency, please follow the instructions for Deferred Exam Procedures. Send the completed Deferred Standing Agreement and Attending Physician's Statement to ugmath@yorku.ca and your instructor no later than one week the date of the missed exam.
  • Math/Stats has one Common Deferred Makeup Date for each exam period. This date is not negotiable.
  • You can only defer a final exam once. If you don't write on the deferred date, you must submit a formal petition (see info on petitions below).
  • Final grades will be posted online. If the grade is not available, students should contact their instructor. The Undergraduate Office does not give out grades to students. If a student deferred their exam, their grade will not appear online. After students write the deferred exam, they can obtain the grade from their instructor.
  • If a student feels their grade is not correct, they should contact their instructor. Students can also
    request a reappraisal of their exam or final grade by submitting the Reappraisal Request Form to ugmath@yorku.ca (this can result in grades going up or down). The deadlines for Grade Reappraisal are: Fall Term (F) February 15th, Fall/Winter (F/W) June 15th, Winter (W) June 15th, Summer (SU, S1, S2) September 30th (or 21 days from the release of grades, whichever is later). See here for more information.
  • A petition is a written request for the waiver of a Faculty's academic regulation or deadline. Please see this link for more detailed information and all forms.
  • If you need a Course Performance Summary Form, get the form and fill in Section I. Then email your form to upsmath@yorku.ca so that the instructor/department can fill in Section II. We will email you the completed form.


  • All new students will receive one-on-one advising through Science Academic Services .
  • All Math/Stats students take exactly the same Math/Stats courses in their first year at York.
  • If you are enrolled in a Math/Stats program and need advice, please contact the coordinator for your program listed below.
  • If you are enrolled in a Math/Stats program and need advice on general education requirements, please contact Science Academic Services.
  • If you have enrolled in a new Math/Stats program, we will set up an advising appointment for you.
  • If you are not enrolled in a Math/Stats program and want advice on Math/Stats courses, please contact your home program.

The Math Lab and Stats Lab, collectively called the Math/Stats Lab and located in ROSS S525, provides students one-on-one tutorial help for most first and second year introductory level MATH courses. Tutors are graduate students and professors from the department. Due to the pandemic, tutors have been assigned differently. Please speak with your course director about the tutors available in your course. Students and faculty engaging together in our department's math/stats lab.

Bethune College also has resources to help students succeed in their math and statistics courses. In particular, there are special tutorials for entering students who need to upgrade their skills in algebra and trigonometry. For additional academic support that Bethune College provides, visit here.

We also encourage forming study groups. Study groups are a great way to accelerate your learning, especially in the Sciences. By regularly getting together with others in your class to study you can compare and review study notes, discuss and clarify concepts, develop and evaluate study strategies, and prepare for tests and exams.

The Advanced Multimedia Lab (also called the "Gauss Lab") supports those of our mathematics and statistics courses which have a significant computing component. Some of these courses meet in this lab. At times when no classes are scheduled there, the Gauss Lab is open for general student use. Learn more about computer access at Computing at York.

You can go to the Career Centre to get help with your career development and job search. Gain the skills you need to land the career/job you want at the end of your degree
