  • AT LEAST 9 credits of the 15 credit hour minor must be STAT courses.
  • *IE 53000 and MA 41600 are considered a STAT course due to cross-listing
  • Students Majoring in Actuarial Science, Actuarial Science Honors, Data Science,  Applied Statistics, Mathematical Statistics, Statistics with Math, and/or Statistics Honors cannot complete this minor.
  • Students must earn a 2.0 average in MATH/STAT/IE courses required for the minor. 
  • Courses that do not require calculus, such as PSY 20100 and SOC 38200 are not equivalent to the courses listed.
  • Credit for the STAT minor is not allowed for more than one course in each group (per Course Catalog descriptions):
    • STAT 22500, STAT 31100, STAT 41600 or MA 41600
    • STAT 30100, STAT 35000, STAT 50100
