Co-op credit for Stat 812

MSc students in the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science are generally required to obtain credit for STAT 812 as part of their program. The principal purpose of this requirement is to make sure that students have practice dealing with clients in a consulting context. With the approval of their senior supervisor, students may earn credit for STAT 812 through a co-operative-education work term. In order to get credit for STAT 812 in this way:

  1. Students should ask their supervisor to write to the Director of the Statistical Consulting Service to request the approval, cc'ing the Graduate program chair and the student.
  2. Students should forward the approval to the Graduate Program Secretary, and request that STAT 812 be graded S/U. They should then register for STAT 812 for the semester they are on co-op.
  3. Students will submit, at the end of the co-op, a report outlining their relevant activities. The report should be submitted to the Director of the Statistical Consulting Service who will assign the S/U grade.
