Data Science Certificate FAQs
The S&DS certificate notation appears upon graduation and is listed in the upper left hand corner of a student’s transcript in the form:
Record of: [student name]
Events: Certificate: Data Science
No. The certificate is only for undergraduates.
No. There can be no overlap between courses used to complete your major and the certificate. If a course in the certificate must be counted in your major, we suggest that you take a different course in the certificate. Or, you could ask your DUS that you be allowed to complete a different course in your major. Similarly, we note that the term “prerequisite” is used by EP&E (for example – maybe others) to describe courses that count for the major but are “prerequisite” to applying to the major; an overlap here is similarly not permitted.
For courses taken in Spring 2020: YES.
For courses taken in other semesters: No. Every course in the certificate must be taken for a grade.
