Contact Mathematics

From questions on our Mathematics programs, to mathematics career guidance, we can help.

For general inquiries, please email us at math@neiu.edu. For major/minor declarations, or any other inquiries, please visit our Department offices on the second floor of Bernard Brommel Hall, room BBH 214C, during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

For course authorization requests, please review the Mathematics Courses listings for all course prerequisites. If you would like to be authorized for a course, please use the online Math Course Authorization Form and allow two business days for your request to be reviewed. If your request is approved, the permission/override will be listed on your NEIUport registration status.

For Mathematics program advising contact the appropriate faculty.
