To graduate with a Mathematics or Statistics major, students must pass the associated Comprehensive Exam. Typically majors take the Comprehensive Exam as seniors, with exceptions for juniors who qualify for Honors in Mathematics or who write a Statistics thesis. Please talk to your advisor to learn the full set of rules governing the Comprehensive Exam.
We have lots of information available to support students in passing the comprehensive exam for each major.
Please consult with your advisor and other professors if you have any questions and or would like help in preparing for the Comprehensive Exam.
