Dates and Times to approximately mirror Summer Session II (August 1st - September 9th).

JumpStart is a hybrid program consisting of online (5 weeks) and on-campus portions (approx. one week).  The online courses will essentially consist of the material covered in the MATH 205 (Analysis) and MATH 230 (Algebra) sequences, which will not be for credit or units.

The courses are meant to bring newly admitted students up to speed with the expectations of the program by refreshing important undergraduate material and introducing some new material. The courses will run from August 2022 to September 2022 and will be complemented by an intensive problem-solving week on campus, scheduled tentatively 09/06 - 09/09/22 and concluded with the comprehensive exam in analysis, and the option to take the qualifying exams. The comprehensive exam will inform a recommendation as to what courses to take for the first year in the program.

Students who are interested in attending this program (attendance is strongly recommended) can sign up through the graduate coordinator Lissette Umanzor:
