Degree Plan

Bachelor of Science in Statistics

A minimum of 120 college credit hours are required for graduation to include: 45 hours of residency, 36 upper division hours (3000-4000 level), completion of 36 of the last 45 hours at UIW, and 45 clock hours of community service. Preparatory or ESL courses will not count towards the 120 hours required to graduate. A Grade of C or better is required in ENGL 1311L, 1312, pre-requisite courses and courses for your Major/Minor/Concentration/Specialization. Deviating from this plan may delay graduation. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all requirements are fulfilled as stated in the catalog.

*The format of the B.S. in Statistics gives students the flexibility to pursue coursework in a variety of branches of statistics by selecting multiple statistics electives, or to pursue a minor or major in another discipline.
