How large is the STAT Distance Degree Program?
There are currently about 120 students enrolled in our Distance Degree Program, with approximately 130 total course registrations (some students are able to take more than one class per semester). Approximately 40 of these students are official (admitted) MS students; approximately 30 are 'applied certificate' students; and approximately 40 are either working on the Theory certificate or in the process of gaining admission into our MS program. Other students, not actively pursuing a degree or certificate, are just taking a course or two to improve their background in statistics or to complete a requirement for a degree program they are in or wish to enter.

Are the distance students only from the US?
Approximately 90% of our distance STAT students are from the US. The remaining 10% of our students are from many different countries, including Canada, Australia, Colombia and India, to name a few.
