Registration material can be requested from:

Leonard F. Klosinski
Putnam Mathematical Competition
Department of Mathematics and Computer Science
Santa Clara University
500 El Camino Real
Santa Clara, CA 95053-0374

Any college or university desiring to compete should complete the registration material and return it so as to reach the Director no later than mid-October.
When there are three or more contestants from the same institution, those chosen as the team should be numbered 1, 2, and 3. The others should be numbered in sequence as alternate team members with the understanding that contestant number 4 is to be a member of the team if one of the first three does not take the examination, and so on.

No individual student may enter the Competition independently of his or her institution. All contestants must be entered by the Putnam supervisor at a two or four-year college or university in the United States or Canada.

The local supervisor must be a faculty member.
