The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers graduate programs leading to the M.S. in applied probability and statistics, the M.S. in mathematics, and the Ph.D. in mathematical sciences. Applicants to these graduate programs are normally notified of an admission decision within three weeks of receipt of the complete application.

If a student in an M.S. program has already completed a required 400-level course with a grade of C or better as an undergraduate at NIU, that course requirement will be waived in the student’s M.S. program. Other graduate course work will be substituted to complete the required program, with the approval of the student’s adviser.
