Minimum Credit Hours Required for Graduation*: 120
Major/Program Footnotes 1. E 115 satisfies the orientation requirement, but is only a 1-credit course and does not provide GEP credit for Interdisciplinary Perspectives. Students taking E 115 to fill this requirement will need to take 1 additional overall credit to reach the 120 credit minimum, and will need to make sure they take the required 5 total credits of Interdisciplinary Perspectives. 2. At most one D level grade is permitted in Advised Electives, Statistics Electives, or required MAT, ST, or CSC courses. C- or better is required in ST 307, 311, 312 and ST 421. 3. Students transferring into the Statistics major having already taken BUS 350, ST 350, ST 370, or ST 371 may substitute that course for ST 311. 4. Students transferring into the Statistics major having already taken ST 372 may substitute that course for ST 312. 5. Students considering graduate school are strongly encouraged to select ST 405. 6. A documented plan for the 12 credits of the Advised Electives will be created in conjunction with the student’s academic advisor. These courses may or may not be statistics courses. Students are encouraged to use Advised Elective credits to pursue a minor or second minor. Note that many courses used as Advised Electives might have prerequisites or other restrictions. 7. A minimum of 120 credit hours are required for graduation. 8. A minimum of 11 credits from the GEP list of Natural Sciences are required. Selected courses mustinclude (i) at least two laboratory classes and (ii) at least three 3- or 4-credit courses. 9. Computational Statistics Electives should be selected from the list on your degree audit. 10. Statistics Electives must be ST- labeled courses at the 400 level. 11. No more than 6 total credits from undergraduate research, independent study, credit by examination, or other similar types of courses may be used to meet program requirements (credit from AP exams or transfer credits is not included under this restriction). If you are unsure if a course falls into this category, please confer with your advisor.   * General Education Program (GEP) requirements and GEP Footnotes To complete the requirements for graduation and the General Education Program, the following category credit hours and co-requisites must be satisfied.
