The student may apply for the minor specialization after passing 45 credits.

Total number of required credits: 24

C) Rules for transferring to the Department of Statistics & Operations Research
(applied statistics or statistics and operations research majors) form other faculty of science majors

1.       The student’s GPA must not be less than (C+), 2.33 points.

2.       The student has to have passed at least one statistics and operations research course.

3.       The student has to have completed two of the following courses with an average of C+ or higher (GPA of 2.33 or higher):

a.       101 Calculus A

b.       102 Calculus B

c.        111 Linear Algebra

d.       Any of the following statistics courses (210, 230, 240, or 250). 

 (Note that the first grade will be ignored and the new grade will be taken if the course is repeated. In the case of a course being repeated more than once the average of the last two grades will be taken in place of the initial grade.)

4.       If the student has taken more than two courses in list (3) then, the student's grade point average in these courses must be 2.00 or higher.

        (Note that the first grade will be ignored and the new grade will be taken if the course is repeated. In the case of a course being repeated more than once, the average of the last two grades will be taken in place of the initial grade.)

5.     Students must also meet the department of statistics and operations research admission requirements for undergraduate students enrolled under the general major of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. (These requirements are stated in part A above).

     Note: For statistics and operations research students that wish to transfer
     between the two specializations of the department, the student must not be on probations list.
