1

Students with prior credit for STA 261 or ISA 205 may not take STA 301 and must take STA 363 as their introductory statistics course.

2

May be counted as an elective if credit has been earned for STA 301 and STA 363 is completed prior to taking STA 463/STA 563.

3

The related hours requirement is waived for students who complete the requirements for a major, co-major, or minor outside of the Department of Statistics.

Related Area Hour Reduction:  Some students may want to have the flexibility to include in their program an additional elective course in mathematics or statistics.  To that end, the cluster of related courses required can be reduced by up to 3 hours (of the 6 advanced hours) by taking the same number of hours in MTH or STA (numbered 400 or higher and not a service course).  This decision is made in consultation with the Chief Departmental Adviser.
