4. How do I get advised for a Mathematics Major or Minor?
Out advisors are: Dr. Frank Mathis, Dr. Brian Raines, Dr. Ronald Morgan, Dr. Robert Kirby, Dr. Jonatan Lenells & Dr. David Ryden. You may call or email any of these professors for an appointment.

5. How do I get an override for prerequisite waiver?
Call or email Judy_Dees@baylor.edu

6. How do I get approval to transfer in classes from another institution?
Go to the Equivalent Course Tool system (ECT). You can just type in ECT in the Baylor search engine and it will take you there. Pre-approved courses are listed. If your course is not listed at the college you want to attend, then you will need to submit hte information online that is asked for. The exception to this is foreign courses which are not on the list.

7. What is a degree petition and how is this form used?
A degree petition lets you substitute one class for another in your major field of study. This is not the form you use to transfer a class to Baylor as an equivalent course.
