Deferral Policy

Students admitted to the Online MSDS program may defer their offer of enrollment to the next cohort start date if they are facing extreme mitigating financial or health concerns. In order to request a deferral, admitted students must accept their offer of admission, submit the non-refundable $400 tuition deposit which will be applied toward their future tuition, and submit the late start request form. Deferrals are not guaranteed and are granted at the discretion of the School of Data Science. If not granted a deferral, applicants can reapply to the program.
