With additional study, the degree may be upgraded to a 120 credit hour Major or Honours degree at a later date.

A 90 credit hour BSc or BA in Statistics is usually the preferred option for students who wish to combine studies in Statistics with a degree in Engineering (see BSc/BEng or BA/BEng Concurrent Program).
