School of Statistics Registration Procedures

1. Prerequisites for courses are strictly enforced. Course prerequisites are listed in the Class Schedule and on the School of Statistics website.

  • Completion of the prerequisite for a course was completed via AP credit.
  • The School of Statistics has given special permission for a student to join a course.

3. If a student qualifies for a permission number they must email the School of Statistics undergraduate advisor and include the information listed below.

  • First and last name.
  • Student ID number.
  • Name of institution where prerequisite was completed (If completed via AP credit please indicate such).
