Students may check the date on the Graduate Academic Calendar to learn when registration begins.
If students want to discuss the courses they plan to take, they should contact their advisor, the Director of the Applied Statistics Graduate Program. Once students have made their decision, they must send an email to the Director of the Applied Statistics Graduate Program listing the courses for which they want to register.
These emails represent the documentation needed before registration Personal Identification Numbers (PINs) can be released. Upon approval of the course selections, students will be sent their PINs via email. If students’ plans change, those changes must be documented in an email to the Director of the Applied Statistics Graduate Program. It is important that students register only for those courses that are appropriate to their status in the MSAS Graduate Program.
Students are able to obtain the schedule of courses for the upcoming semester with the corresponding names of professors, meeting times, room assignments, and textbooks. Students should send their emails in a timely fashion to increase their chances of availability of the courses for which they intend to register.
In their first academic year, full-time students must take at least 6 credits in the fall semester (usually MAT 7404 and MAT 8400) and at least 6 credits in the spring semester (usually MAT 8401 and MAT 8406 ).
Thereafter, full-time students must take at least 9 credits during each semester of the following academic year, unless fewer than 9 credits are required in order to be able to accumulate at least 30 credits by the end of their second academic year. See the Typical Schedule for Full-Time MSAS Graduate Students.
