^{1}COSC 111 may be replaced by COSC 122 and 123.
^{2}COSC 111 and 121 may be taken in 2nd year
^{3}Pre-reqs for STAT 230 are DATA 101 or COSC 221. Therefore, students who take STAT 121 instead of DATA 101 in first year will need to take COSC 221 before enrolling in STAT 230.
^{4}MATH 221 may be taken in the second term of the 1st year
A student must successfully complete MATH 220 and 18 credits of MATH courses numbered 300 or above (excluding MATH 448).
A student must successfully complete MATH 220 and 18 credits of MATH and STAT courses numbered 300 or above (excluding MATH 448 and STAT 448) of which at least 6 credits must be MATH courses and at least 6 credits must be STAT courses.
