Department Advising

All Statistics majors are assigned a faculty advisor.  Major advisors can assist students with course selection, answer department policy questions, and connect students with on-campus resources.

If you are currently a Statistics major and you're not sure who your advisor is, contact the lead advisor, Dr. Matt Carlton.

If you are considering switching into Statistics, the major-change process begins with the department chair.  The department chair will assign you a faculty advisor. 

Students interested in the Statistics minor should contact Dr. Karen McGaughey or Heather Smith.
