A new cohort of the BS Mathematics Major begins Fall 2016.   It is important to note that that this is an eight-semester (or approximately three-year) cohort program which includes two summer sessions.  If a student drops, fails, or does not register for a course in the three-year rotation, it is the student’s responsibility to find an appropriate course substitution or wait until the course is offered again when a new rotation starts in Fall 2019. 

Now is the time to submit your Mayville State University admission application if you are interested in the Fall 2016 cohort.  See this link for the online MSU application:  https://app.applyyourself.com/AYApplicantLogin/fl_ApplicantConnectLogin.asp?id=mayville .
