Students at the Math Olympics

2024 Math Olympics

Registration Deadlines

The registration deadlines for 2024 Math Olympics are:

  • Initial registration: Friday, March 29, 2024
  • Final registration: Friday, April 12, 2024

Initial Registration

The purpose of the initial registration is to get an early idea about how many schools will be participating, and approximately how many students and teachers will be on campus on the day of the competition.

To register for the Math Olympics competition, please send an email to with the subject line "Math Olympics initial registration" before the initial registration deadline.

In the email, please include an estimated number of students attending and an estimated number of accompanying adults.  You can also include any other relevant information that you think would help us prepare for the event.

Final Registration


The deadline for final registration for the Math Olympics is generally at noon on Friday one week before the competition. Please make sure we receive your registration material before the deadline!  Any registrations received after the final registration deadline will only be considered as long as resources permit.

In other words: one week before the competition, we count how many schools and students are participating in the competition, and start allocating resources  (rooms, seating, exam proctors, printed exams and forms, etc.) and assigning teams to rooms. If we receive your registration after the deadline, we may still be able to squeeze you in, but it is possible that we will not have enough resources to do that.  So try to send in your registration as soon as possible (ideally as soon as you have finalized your list of participants).

Registration process

The registration process has one important update compared to the past practice:

In addition to the teacher submitting the names of all students, the admission office now requires that each student also self-registers for the event. There is a online form that the students will fill out. You will get an email with the URL for the online form after you complete the initial registration.

Note that there is now a limit of 100 students total from each school .

You are responsible for ensuring that students are taking the correct level of examination. If you are not sure which classes a student attended, please review the student's transcripts from any prior school attended.

The Level I test is for students who have had or are currently in the Algebra I, Algebra II, and Plane Geometry track. The Level II test is for those students whose math background extends beyond the courses listed above.

Please provide your registration information via a spreadsheet. Any common spreadsheet format (MS Excel, OO Calc, csv, ...) is acceptable. The data should be clearly separated into 3 areas:

  1. School name, contact information, number of students in each level and number of students buying lunch on campus.
  2. The names of all Level I participants (if any).
  3. The names of all Level II participants (if any).

Please email the spreadsheet to including the words "Math Olympics registration" in the subject line.

You should print the spreadsheet at the same time as you submit it, without adding or removing any names. Use the printed spreadsheet to mark changes in the following way:


Inevitably, some changes will occur between the registration and the day of the event. Please inform us before event day if you can. That way we can make sure that there will be enough space for all participants in the exam rooms. If you need to add students to your teams after registration:

  • If the number of students added is small (less than 6 students per level), you can add the names of the students up to the morning before the competition.
  • If you need to add more than 5 students on one or both of the levels, please notify us ASAP, and re-submit your complete registration information. We need to know this ahead of time so we can change room assignments, if necessary.

To help us assure that all participants names get properly recorded, please follow these steps:

  1. Print the spreadsheet before mailing it to us.
  2. Save the printed spreadsheet, and bring it with you on the day of the competition .
  3. If you need to add names to the printed spreadsheet , up to 5 names for each level can be added by hand on your print-out. Make sure that those are clearly visible. If you need to add more than 5 names to one or both levels, please re-submit the entire registration information.
  4. On the morning of the competition , please check which students are present, and mark those clearly on your printout.
  5. Upon arrival to the competition, bring the printed spreadsheet to the registration desk. This printout should now have:
    • Names of all additional students (at most 5 per level) listed in proper places.
    • Check-marks next to the names of all students who are actually in attendance.

Thank you for helping us ensure a smooth registration process for your students.

Directions and Parking

Important: Change of Location!

This year the Math Olympics registration, the opening ceremony and the awards ceremony are taking place in the Malcom Field Theater in the SVSU Groening Commons, which is on the opposite side of campus from the Hamilton Gym where the event took place in the past!

To get to campus, set your navigation to one of the following:

  • SVSU Groening Commons
  • SVSU Curtis Hall
  • SVSU Malcom Field Theater
  • SVSU Performing Arts Center

The buses can unload on a loop in front of the Groening Commons. They can then park in one of the J parking lots nearby.  Students should enter through the revolving doors into the commons. The registration desk will be right there in the commons area in front of the theater.

On the campus map, Groening Commons is marked with number 21, towards the west side of campus. The Doan Center, where lunch is served, is located nearby, number 14 on the map.
