Admissions & Financial Aid

Admission Requirements

Admission to the MS degree program will be granted to qualified holders of a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university who have an acceptable GPA and mathematics credits, including acceptable grades in a two-semester (or three-quarter) sequence of university-level calculus, and acceptable probability and statistics college credits. An undergraduate GPA of 3.0 is strongly recommended. Applicants who fail to meet these requirements may be admitted on a contingency basis -- they will be required to complete these prerequisites prior to matriculation in the graduate program.

Entrance exams are not required. However, international students whose native language is not English must have a TOEFL score of at least 550 (paper-based) or 213 (computer-based). Full-time students must begin their full-time studies in the fall quarter. Part-time students may begin their studies based on our schedule of courses.

To be considered for admission to the MS program in applied statistics, candidates must fulfill the following requirements:

  • Hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution (3.0 GPA strongly recommended),
  • Have a satisfactory background in mathematics (one year of university-level calculus) and statistics (preferably two courses in probability and statistics)
  • Submit official transcripts (in English) of all previously completed undergraduate and graduate course work,
  • Submit a current resume,
  • Submit two letters of recommendation, and
  • Complete a graduate application.

Note: GRE’s are not required, but may be beneficial for some students. International students will need to provide evidence of acceptable English reading, writing, and speaking skills.
