Transfer Credits

Students may transfer a maximum of 6 credits from other graduate programs toward their MSAS degree, provided these courses correspond to existing courses in the Applied Statistics curriculum and are within the six year time frame allotted for the degree. The request for transfer must be presented and approved at the time of admission to the program as a matriculated student. This request should be in the form of a letter, written by the student and addressed to the Director of the Applied Statistics Program. It should identify the courses to be transferred, including detailed course descriptions and the courses in the MSAS program to which they correspond. A minimum grade of B in each course is required for such a transfer. To transfer courses equivalent to MAT 8400 and MAT 8401, the student must also pass an examination in each course. A student with non-matriculated status may not transfer credits at the time of admission.
