The normal requirement for admission to the master's program is an Honours bachelor's degree in mathematics, statistics or the equivalent, with B+ or higher in the honours subject and B- or higher overall. Applicants holding a general (three-year) degree with an overall GPA of at least B+ may be admitted to a qualifying-year program. Subsequent admission to the regular master's program depends on performance during the qualifying-year program and will be decided no later than one year after admission to the qualifying-year program.
