Which university offers online PhD program in Statistics/Applied Math?

This answer was rated:

I want to get PhD in Statistics or Applied Math online ( I cannot quit my job).
Which university offer such PhD program?
Unfortunately, online/distance PhD programs are not that common, and mathematics is not one of the most common program.

Staffordshire University in the UK does offer a program

The program provided in this answer a) is a part-time program (I asked for online) b) this program is in UK, not in US and they have some restriction for foreigners.

Hello, What part of the country do you live? Thanks Tom
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I am living in San Jose, CA.
I have checked Santa Cruz University - they do not have online PhD program in Applied Math or Statistics.
I guess that the part of the country should not matter for online program.

Hello, even though it is online, since it is advanced program it may be necessary to go to a campus to complete. I will do some checking. Tom

OK. In theory I could make short (2-3 days) trips to take exams or something like this.
Hello, I have done extensive online research and except for a few courses I can not find anyone who offers a complete online course. Many will not even offer part time PHD candidates to apply. Sorry I couldn't help. I will opt out and see if someone else can help. Thank You Tom

Thanks!
While I understand that you would like a online PhD based in the USA.... In reality there are not any such programs.

There are some international programs, including the Stafforshire program and one at Unisa (South Africa)

Unisa has a respected distance education program, and this may meet your needs.
