Sequential Degree Program

The Sequential Degree Program is a pathway for Statistics undergraduate students to complete the Master of Applied Statistics degree immediately after completion of their bachelor’s degree. Successful completion of the undergraduate prerequisites (listed below) prepares students to be admitted into the M.A.S. program, which can be completed in 11 months.

Admission Requirements

Current undergraduate Statistics majors may apply to the BS/M.A.S. sequential degree program when the following conditions have been met:

Students must have a 3.5 GPA in the following classes and at least a B in all:
STAT 341
STAT 342
MATH 160
MATH 161
MATH 261
MATH 369

Students are admitted to the SDP after they have applied and met the criteria. They are admitted to the MAS upon completion of their bachelor’s degree, provided they have met the other requirements.

After students receive permission to pursue the BS/M.A.S. sequential degree program, they must complete a Graduate School application. Students complete the Grad School application for the MAS during their final year of the bachelor’s degree program. Graduate applications will not be accepted earlier than one-year prior to starting the graduate program.

Students may enroll in up to nine credits of their graduate program as undergraduates, while paying the undergraduate tuition rate according to the undergraduate exclusion policy. Such credits do not apply toward the undergraduate degree. Undergraduates who enroll in 500-level courses, which are not applied toward the bachelor’s degree, may request that an exclusion statement be placed on their academic records for no more than nine credits. Students cannot exclude any courses below the 500-level under this policy. Courses at the 600-level are automatically excluded from use for an undergraduate degree.
