    Our undergraduate Statistics program is one of the largest in the country with about 200 students, many of whom transferred from other programs on campus. A significant proportion of our undergraduates pursue advanced degrees in statistics or related fields following graduation. Upon completion of our program, students will be able to:

    • Explain the theoretical basis of commonly used statistical methods.
    • Design sample surveys and experiments for standard situations.
    • Correctly analyze and interpret the results from standard designed experiments, sample surveys, and observational studies.
    • Demonstrate sufficient computer programming ability to manage data, implement standard statistical methods, and learn new programming languages in the future.
    • Explain statistical ideas, methods and results orally and in writing to non-statistical audiences.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.


    University requirements

    Considered a more selective university, NC State accepts about half of those who apply for undergraduate admission. For the class of 2019, 21,104 applied and 10,584, or 50%, were accepted, of whom 4,210 enrolled.

    Members of the class of 2019 had average SAT verbal, math and writing scores of 610, 640 and 587, respectively, for a two-part total (verbal and math) of 1250 (1600-point scale) or a three-part total of 1836 (2400-point scale). The 4,210 students who enrolled had an average high school GPA of 4.44; 40%, or 1,677, ranked in the top 10% of their graduating classes. There were 130 valedictorians and 102 salutatorians in the class.

    Transfer admission is also very competitive. The mean transfer GPA was a 3.30 fall of 2008. In the fall of 2015, 4,165 students applied to the transfer class; 1,470, or 35%, were admitted.

    NC State does not require undergraduate admission candidates to choose a preferred college of study. After determining that an applicant meets the overall university requirements, the individual college must also agree to accept the student. Because of this process, some colleges have significantly higher admission requirements than others.

    The Graduate School reviews all postgraduate education applications. For fall 2015, 14,394 prospective students applied to the Graduate School; 3,460 (24%) were admitted. Of these, 2,982 (80.3%) enrolled.
