GRE and TOEFL/IELTS Scores
For future admission cycles, GRE scores will be optional for applicants to the Statistics PhD program. Applicants do not need to submit these scores if they do not wish to.
Any international student who does not qualify for an English language proficiency waiver will be required to submit official TOEFL or IELTS scores. There can be no exceptions to this policy.
