Policies for the Joint XU/LSUHSC Statistics Program – The following policies apply to the Statistics major:
  1. Xavier students having at least a 3.0 GPA in mathematics and statistics courses
    listed in the first three years of the program and having an overall GPA of at least 2.5
    are eligible, upon approval of the LSUHSC Department of Biostatistics, for admission at
    LSUHSC to those courses listed in the fourth year of the program.
  2. During the fourth year of the program, students will register at both LSUHSC and Xavier.
    In addition to their Xavier courses,
    1. in the fall semester, students will register at Xavier for 10 semester hours of courses
      to be taken at LSUHSC, and
    2. in the spring semester, students will register at Xavier for 10 semester hours of
      courses to be taken at LSUHSC.
      These students will be considered full-time students at Xavier and pay full Xavier tuition.
      At LSUHSC, the students will be considered special students, paying no additional tuition.
      (LSUHSC will bill Xavier directly for the LSUHSC courses in which the students are enrolled.)
  3. To graduate from Xavier at the end of the fourth year of this program with a B.S.
    in Statistics, students must:
    1. maintain at least a “C” grade in each of the courses taken at LSUHSC,
    2. pass a comprehensive examination covering mathematics and statistics courses taken
      at Xavier, and
    3. satisfy all other Xavier University general degree requirements.
  4. Admission as a regular graduate student at LSUHSC in the fifth year of this program
    is contingent upon approval of the Department of Biostatistics at LSUHSC.
  5. To graduate from LSUHSC with and M.S. degree from the Department of Biostatistics,
    students must:
    1. maintain at least a “B” average at LSUHSC,
    2. make an acceptable score on the Graduate Record Examination which must be taken prior
      to the fifth year of the program, and
    3. satisfy all other regular requirements of the LSUHSC School of Graduate Studies
      and the Department of Biostatistics.
