Admission and Financial Aid

Analytics and visualization are in-demand in just about every profession and industry. And the same is true for our students. They come from a variety of undergraduate majors and professions. Program prerequisites include one course in calculus, one course in statistics, and one course in programming (in a modern language such as C++, Java, or Python, etc.), each with a grade of B+ or better within the last three years. Making a career change or don't have these prerequisites? We have a pathway for you to get started now. Schedule an appointment with one of our admissions directors to learn more.
