Applications for master's degree programs are accepted from undergraduate majors in mathematics, the mathematical sciences, e.g., economics and statistics, and engineering. Applications for the doctoral degree program are generally accepted from holders of a master's degree from a recognized program, preferably an OR program or one in an allied field. These applicants show promise of success at the Ph.D. level, as indicated by previous academic performance and independent research. Students with only a Bachelor's degree but with outstanding academic records can apply directly to the Ph.D. program.
GRE scores are required of all applicants. No minimum requirement has been established, but the following average scores for a recent entering class of twenty students may serve as a guide (Verbal 491, Quantitative 735, Analytical 4.0).
In addition to the above, international students are required to submit with their application to the graduate school:
