Detailed Fees Description

Job seekers:  

We encourage you to check out our job market in data analytics page, conduct some job searches, find jobs that interest you, and see what skills are needed.  Statistics.com can help you acquire most of the analytics skills you need.

Is there an application deadline?

Applications are accepted year round on a rolling basis and courses begin every month.The timeline tool in the "Program" tab shows you the recommended sequence of courses so you can choose your starting date.

Are there admission requirements?

We'd like you to have a Bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university.

Also, you should have recently had introductory statistics, equivalent to Statistics.com's Statistics 1 and Statistics 2. If you haven't, or if you'd like to go over that ground again, no worries. We'll put you in Statistics 1 and 2 at no charge once we accept your application! Statistics 1 starts at the beginning of each month.

What are the fees?

The enrollment fee is $495, which includes free enrollment in Statistics.com's Statistics 1 and Statistics 2 courses if needed. Once you are enrolled, you register and pay for each course as you go at a discounted rate. The required text that you need to purchase are listed on this Amazon Wish List.

Is there any particular way I should schedule my courses?

Scheduling is  flexible with courses offered throughout the year. The format does not require you to be online at any specific time.  Most certificate students take one course at a time and we encourage you to plan your program with the courses that fit into your schedule.

Can I get credit for courses I have already taken at Statistics.com?

Ideally, you will have one course from us already to make sure that our format works for you. We will transfer up to three courses to your program, provided you got adequate marks.

If I have already mastered a topic from my work or prior academic experience, do I need to repeat it?

We do not want to waste your time. Just share with us how you covered the topic and we'll swap out that course for something else.

The courses in the certificate don't exactly match what I need. Can I craft a custom program?

Tell us what you have in mind. We can work together to create a program that makes sense. A customization fee is charged.

How long do I have to complete the certificate?

If you take one course at a time, most programs can be completed in 12-15 months.  We know that sometimes life takes unexpected turns, so you have 3 years to complete the certificate.

Are the certificate programs accredited?

  • The American Council on Education (ACE) has recommended academic credit for all the required courses in the Analytics for Data Science Certificate Program, so they can be easily transfered to another educational institution that accepts ACE CREDIT.
  • The Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) chose Statistics.com as a Recognized Analytics Education Provider that supports the Certified Analytics Professional (CAP®) program.
  • Each course has C.E.U.'s granted, based on the length of the course.  (Typically 5.0 CEUs for 4 week courses.)
  • The Institute for Statistics Education itself is not an accredited academic institution, but is

    certified to operate by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV).
