Policies on Acceptance of Academic Credit
Transfer Credit will not be accepted from other institutions, nor will transfer credit be accepted for experiential learning or professional certificates.
Applicants may petition the Graduate Admissions Selection Committee for permission to take a written qualifying examination. Applicants who pass the qualifying examination will receive credit by exam for up to 12 graduate credit hours towards a Master’s degree in Data Science.
If the petition is granted, the Master’s in Science in Data Science Program sets an appropriate examination and certifies competency in four areas required for further study in Data Science: statistical inference, data storage and retrieval, algorithms for data science, and data munging and exploratory data analysis. Enrolled students may not receive credit by examination when the same course has previously been failed.

- Documentation of a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university with an undergraduate grade point average of at least 3.0, or documentation of a bachelor’s degree and record of successful achievement at an accredited college or university that uses narrative evaluations rather than grades.
