This page contains general information about applying to one of the three M.S. programs in the STOR Department (for students who are NOT currently enrolled in a graduate program at UNC-CH).

Applying for admissions to the STOR M.S. programs:



Applicants to the MS program should have a strong record of undergraduate coursework in statistics and mathematics. Statistics coursework should include an introductory course in statistics (similar to STOR 155), an intermediate level course in inference and regression (similar to STOR 455), and a calculus based probability course (similar to STOR 435). Mathematical coursework should include single and multivariable calculus, as well as an intermediate or advanced level course in linear and matrix algebra. Students interested in theoretical statistics or probability should have prior coursework in advanced calculus or real analysis.


The application deadline is mid-December each year for students applying for Fall admissions.  Exact dates can be found here.  If you are NOT currently enrolled in another graduate program at UNC-CH, then you can only begin an M.S. program in the Fall semester.

Financial Assistance

The Department is not able to provide financial assistance to M.S. students.
