DATA 200, Computational Programming for Data Analytics, is a remedial course in addition to the 10 required courses of the MSDA degree. Just like the degree-required courses, the tuition cost of DATA 200 is $2,250.

The status of all students admitted to spring 2020 semester is “Conditionally Classified”.
