New Statistics 20 Lecture Open for Summer Session A

Stats 20 Discussion 2A and 2B is now enrolling students for the summer with Professor Almohalwas. If you know anyone who would like to enroll, please encourage them to do so. Remember that Stats 20 is a prerequisite for entry into the Minor and the Major and students will not be allowed to apply to either without Stats 20 -- no exceptions!

Fall 2015 enrollment for Stats 20 will go quickly on a first come first serve basis open only to MAJORS, PRE-MAJORS and MINORS for the first pass. If you are trying to pursue a Stats Minor or Major, take advantage of the summer, as we cannot guarantee enrollment in the Fall quarter for Stats 20.

If you would like to enroll in the summer and cannot do so on your own, please come talk to Eduardo Navarro or Glenda Jones in 8117 Math Sciences Building. Sponsors Data Set For Fifth ASA DataFest at UCLA
