Thank you for your interest in Stanford's Statistics graduate degree programs.
Please take a look at our Academic Programs Overview webpage for details about our program options.
The department is unable to provide any admissions counseling, such as advising or assessment of an applicant's qualifications and therefore does not respond to such requests. Applicants must determine eligibility before starting the application. Eligibility and application requirements are set by the University. The GRE is required of both the M.S. and Ph.D. application. The GRE subject test for Math is required of the Ph.D. application.
Our M.S. admissions and degree program pages address all the relevant information, so please take the time to read them thoroughly. We address the logistics of finishing the degree program on the Frequently Asked Questions page.
The Statistics department does not have staff dedicated to graduate admissions and therefore does not have the resources to accommodate scheduled or drop-in visits from prospective masters students. Only those invited by the Statistics Admissions committee will be obliged. Prospective applicants are welcome to visit Stanford's campus.
