In addition to meeting the University's graduate admission requirements, applicants holding a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 or the equivalent will be granted admission, while those with a cumulative GPA in the range of 2.7 to 2.99 or the equivalent will receive conditional acceptance. Conditional acceptance status will be removed once the student achieves a minimum of a "B" average for the 6 credits taken during their first semester.
Applicants from other relevant majors may also be granted conditional admission, contingent upon the completion of supplementary courses beyond the 33 credits required for the MS in Financial Mathematics. These supplementary credits, although mandatory, will not count toward the 33 credits required for the MS degree. Typically, a maximum of nine transfer credits from previous graduate coursework completed at another accredited institution of higher education may be considered for transfer, subject to the discretion of the Faculty Graduate Committee (FGC).
