Q: Is it possible to complete the statistics major in two more years if I plan to take Math/Stat 302 in term 1 of year 3?

Yes, if you have credit for Math 200 and Math 221 (or their equivalents), and can fit in the Science breadth requirements and the thematic concentation requirements.
For example, take STAT/MATH 302, Stat 300, Stat 344 in term 1 of year 3; STAT 305, Stat 306 in term 2 of year 3. Then you have the prerequisites for Stat 400 level courses.

Q: CPSC 100 and 210 may be difficult to register into. When should CPSC 110 and CPSC 210 (or Math 210) be taken?

Take them as soon as possible but not necessarily by the end of year 2 if there are registration issues.
Credit for CPSC 110 and one of CPSC 210 or Math 210 is required for promotion to year 4.

Q: What are the Statistics course requirements for Promotion to year 4?

STAT 305 and STAT 306 (or ECON 326 for the BA Combined Major in Econ/Stat) must be completed for promotion to year 4. Please also see the Faculty of Science general requirements for promotion. For example:

Q: What are the Statistics course requirements for Promotion to year 3?

For Major in Statistics and Combined Major with Statistics: an average of at least 60% on their first attempts in their best 3 of the 5 "named" courses in Year 2. These five "named" courses in Year 2 are: MATH 200, MATH 220, MATH 221, STAT 200, and STAT/MATH 302. STAT 200 (or equivalent) must be completed for promotion to year 3.

Q: I am a Statistics major. How can I apply to the Statistics co-op program and what are the qualifications?

If you are in year 3, there is a deadline in early October. If you are in year 2, there is a deadline in early March.
Please see web site https://sciencecoop.ubc.ca/prospective/apply/statistics for instructions, qualifications and possible schedules for co-op terms.

Q: I am a Statistics major and would like to change to a combined CPSC/Stat Major program. What is the procedure?

You would have to apply to the CPSC Department. For the form, please see https://www.cs.ubc.ca/students/undergrad/prospective/switching/computer-.... It opens in April, and is closed for parts of the year.

Q: I am a Statistics major and would like to change to a combined Econ/Stat Major program. What is the procedure?

Please see the Department of Economics find web link for more information. The deadline to apply is around May 20th.

Q: I have previously applied for admission to the Statistics major but I was not successful. Can I apply again?

If you have continued to take Stat / Math courses at the 300 level and above, and your grades have improved, then you can apply again at:

Q: I am interested being a Major in Statistics but am currently in a different specialisation. How can I apply to transfer to Statistics?

We assume that you are in year 2 or later. You can apply via the online form at: https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0MQQzD5Bq1wqtyl after you have completed Stat 200 (introductory statistics), Math 200(multivariable calculus), Math 221 (linear algebra) and Math/Stat 302 (introductory probability) with decent grades.
Please read the instructions carefully before submitting your application. Applications will be considered in January and in May each year by the reviewing of overall profiles and grades in relevant Computer Science, Mathematics, and Statistics courses.
The application deadlines are mid-January and mid-May. Entry to the Statistics major is competitive. For any further inquiries such as Major in Mathematical Sciences, please contact an advisor at latemajorentrants at stat dot ubc dot ca.

Q: I am interested being a Major in Statistics, but the Faculty of Science assigned me to a different major. Any recommendations?

If you are in year 2, follow the recommended courses listed in the academic calendar for the Statistics specialisation that you are interested in: for example, Major in Statistics, Combined Major CPSC/Statistics, Combined Major Statistics/Economics.
Take Math 200 (multivariable calculus), Math 221 (linear or matrix algebra) and Math/Stat 302 (introductory probability) as soon as possible. Then read the next item.
