Students who have not completed their thesis at the conclusion of their certificate program, and who must extend the time necessary to do so, will be responsible for the additional tuition associated with the additional Thesis Extension courses needed.

Additional tuition

If the enrollment in the MSCDM program was not done at the start of the certificate program, the students will be responsible to pay new tuition for each of the certificate core courses being re-taken in order to change the grades from a pass/fail to a numeric grade.
