Declaring the Statistics Major

To declare the statistics major, complete the online major declaration form and attend drop-in advising hours or schedule an appointment with an advisor via Starfish. Your online major declaration form will not be processed until you meet with a statistics academic advisor.

  • For more information on scheduling an appointment and drop-in advising hours, see the advising page.

It is not necessary to have completed statistics coursework, but prospective majors are strongly recommended to start the major with the Math 221-222-234 calculus sequence and an introductory statistics course (Stat 240, 301, 324, and 371).

Note for students who are not in the College of Letters and Sciences

Students wishing to declare Statistics in addition to a major outside of Letters and Sciences should first meet with a Statistics advisor and then contact your academic advisor in your home department to discuss your college’s policies on adding a L&S second major.
Students wishing to transfer from another college and 1) become a student in the College of Letters and Sciences and 2) declare a statistics major need to follow the College of Letters & Sciences transfer policies.
