Dates and Times to approximately mirror Summer Session II.

JumpStart is a hybrid program consisting of online (approx. 5 weeks) and on-campus portions (two weeks).  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 08/01-08/31/2023 and will be complemented by two intensive problem-solving weeks on campus, scheduled tentatively 09/04 - 09/15/23 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.
