PhD applicants in Statistics are automatically considered for a tuition-waiver-generating assistantship. As in the past, the Department of Statistics does not typically provide assistantships for MS students. MS students are eligible to accept an assistantship with another department if one is offered, in which case the hiring department may be expected to reimburse the Statistics Department for the cost of the tuition.
