Preparing for data analytics admissions

The Data Analytics programs admit applicants for Fall term only. The current application period opens in mid-September for the program that starts the following September.

The deadline to apply is May 15.

If you will not have completed the ST 351 prerequisite course before the application deadline, it would be advisable to apply much earlier (ideally by February 15) in case you are admitted with the provision that you take the course in spring or summer term before starting the program in fall term.
