Program Admission Requirements

Option 1. Students with a minimum undergraduate GPA of 2.75 and composite score of 280 or higher on the verbal and quantitative sections of the GRE General Test will be accepted. The official score must be filed with the Graduate Office prior to admission but no later than the end of the first trimester of enrollment. If the score is not submitted by the end of the first academic trimester, the student cannot re-enroll until the score is submitted. Students who do not meet the cutoff score of 280 may be accepted on the condition that they maintain a grade point average of at least 3.00 for the first nine graduate hours in mathematics.

Option 2.  Undergraduate mathematics majors within fewer than 30 hours of completing their B.S. in mathematics, with GPA of 2.8 overall and 3.2 in mathematics may apply for a “fast track” admission to the program. Students in this option can complete their B.S. and M.S. in Mathematics in 5 years.

Comprehensive Examination

The content of the comprehensive examination will be equally divided between those courses offered in the required courses and the list of electives. The degree candidate must pass both portions of the examination.
