Thank you for your interest in Colorado State University and the Department of Statistics!

Application deadline for full consideration: March 31, however, we will continue accepting applications for the MAS program through April 30th. We review applications on a rolling basis, so earlier applications are given first consideration.

  • Our on-campus program admits only during the fall semester; however students are expected to report to campus in early August to begin the math and computing bootcamps prior to the start of the fall semester.
  • Graduate Teaching Assistantships are not available for students in the MAS program, therefore, individual faculty members should not be contacted to explore the possibility of support.
  • The MAS Entrance Exam or GRE is required for application.  Of these, we prefer the MAS Entrance Exam.  There is no fee for this exam; however, the exam must be taken at an approved university testing center, which may charge an access fee. To request preparation materials for the exam, please contact Karena Alons at
