Important Considerations

Students should visit Calendars & Deadlines to determine when registration opens and closes, and for cancellation, drop, and withdrawal deadlines. Here are other considerations:

  • Students admitted into GC-Data Science are required to maintain continuous enrollment for courses as outlined in the plan of study. See Academic Policies for a Waiver of Continuous Registration or Leave of Absence.
  • Students Provisionally Admitted on an Unofficial Transcript: Official transcripts indicating receipt of the degree must be submitted before the end of the first semester. Registration for a second semester will not be permitted unless these documents are received by the Graduate School.
  • Students in face-to-face or blended programs are required to submit UMD’s Medical History and Immunization Record form prior to the first day of your first semester. For the policy and form, click here.
  • Students must maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA.
