Applying for Admission to the Online MS in Statistics Program

This information is only needed if you are pursuing the MS degree online. Resident instruction MS students should contact the main Statistics office at Students pursuing a certificate simply sign up for the courses that they need as a non-degree seeking student.

We are in the process of removing our MS (Master's of Science) in Statistics from our online offerings. Please see the information on our new MAS degree.

Only students who have already taken (or who are currently taking) STAT 520, STAT 530, STAT 525, STAT 540 and STAT 640 will be eligible to apply for admission into the MS distance program.

Note: Some credits taken toward the MS degree will be allowed to transfer into the MAS degree.

Note that a minimum of 21 credits must be completed through CSU after admission. Students should keep this in mind when deciding when to apply for admission.  In order for all prior admission credits to count toward the degree, MS students should take no more than 13 credits prior to admission.

Students who have taken or are currently taking STAT 540 may contact the Statistics Department's online learning office for assistance or information regarding applying for admission.
