Congratulations on your acceptance to Montclair State, and on your decision to join the College of Science and Mathematics! Your first step towards academic success is registering for classes, which you can do after meeting with an advisor. The goal of academic advising is to help our undergraduate students create an academic plan toward graduation. It allows students to become aware of what the general education requirements are, what requirements they need to meet in order to complete their specific degree program, as well as aides in solving any academic problems students may encounter during their time as a student at Montclair State University.
If you do not have transfer credit for College Algebra or Pre-Calculus, or if your major requires Chemistry and you do not have transfer credit for at least General Chemistry I, then please fill out the Math & Chemistry Placement Form.
Students will be placed into Math and/or Chemistry courses based on previous academic history. Your information will be verified by an advisor in the CSAM Student Success Center that will let you know which Math and/or Chemistry courses are appropriate for you. You can expect a response soon after you submit the form. If you have questions about this process, please email email@example.com.
Below are the appointment links and emails for CSAM majors. When emailing, please include Incoming CSAM Transfer Student Fall 2020 in the subject. During your advising appointment, please remember to ask for your Fall 2020 registration pin. If you have specific science and math transfer credits that need review, you will need to reach out to those specific offices in addition to your major department.
