A 3.0 overall undergraduate GPA and a GRE of at least 1000 are recommended for admission into the Statistics program.
For a final admissions decision, GRE scores do not constitute the sole criterion for consideration of the applicant, nor do GRE scores and undergraduate GPA constitute the primary criteria to end consideration of an applicant. Based on review of a student’s undergraduate transcript, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics may require completion of undergraduate stem courses as a condition for admission. International students must submit a TOEFL score of at least 550 paper-based or 79 iBt or 6.5 IELTS.
For full consideration an application must complete the following:
- Graduate Admissions Application
- Official transcripts
- Official GRE scores
- Three letters of recommendation
- Official TOEFL or IELTS scores (for international students)
For additional requirements for international students, please visit the Office of International Programs' Prospective Students page.
The prerequisites for the master's degree program in statistics consist of calculus series, linear algebra and calculus based statistics.
Applicants who do not have all the prerequisites for full admission into the graduate program may be conditionally admitted and will be required to complete the prerequisite courses after entry into the program. Students should have completed all the prerequisite courses to be considered for teaching or graduate assistantships.
