Students enter the Biometry and Statistics major as freshmen or as transfer students. A strong background in mathematics is highly recommended for students considering a major in Biometry and Statistics. Students currently enrolled as freshmen or sophomores at other institutions who are considering transferring to the Biometry and Statistics program are encouraged to satisfy as many of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) distribution requirements as possible before transferring. Please contact the Office of Admissions for information regarding specific course work required for transfer admission.
Transferring into the major:
A transfer student must be in good academic standing in the program from which the student is transferring and also by the standards of CALS. To transfer in as a sophomore, a student must have completed one year (two semesters) of calculus with an average grade of B- or better and must have taken at least one course in statistics. To transfer in as a junior, a student must have completed one year (two semesters) of calculus with an average grade of B- or better and must have taken at least two courses in statistics. Transfer students will be exempted from all required courses for which they have taken equivalent courses at other colleges or universities. A student transferring into the major must meet with the student's faculty advisor to discuss and determine which required courses the student has been exempted from taking.
