Data Foundation Nanodegree Program
If you accessed and paid for services for the Data Foundations Nanodegree Program ("DFND Program"), your enrollment is bound by the following additional terms and conditions which modify, amend and supplement Udacity's terms and conditions. Capitalized terms found herein shall also be as defined in the terms and conditions.
Strict Scheduled Project Deadlines & Consequences for Missed Deadlines
Unlike other Nanodegree Programs, the Data Foundation Nanodegree Program is both time based (3-month) and introduces the Program coursework in a way that it is strictly scheduled according to the timely submission and passing of the course projects during the Program term.
Each project will have a submission deadline (with an automatic 1 week grace period) and a period of four (4) weeks to successfully pass the project requirements. Students that are unable to successfully submit or pass a projects accordingly to the scheduled project deadlines will will no longer be in good standing in the program. This means you will no longer have access to any program student services (such as mentorship or project reviews), and you will no longer be eligible to earn your Nanodegree credential. You will retain access to the program content (videos, quizzes, project instructions, etc.) for the remainder of the program duration on a self-paced basis. Please read these terms carefully, if you feel that you may be unable to satisfy the project deadline format, we urge you to consider another Nanodegree Program.
The DFND Program has been developed with strict deadlines. When we use the term "deadline" with regards to Nanodegree program projects, we use it in one of two ways:
- Project submission deadline
- Project passing deadline
- It is very important to understand the distinctions between the two, as your progress in the program is measured against the deadlines we've established. Please see below for an explanation of what each usage means.
Project Submission Deadline
A Project Submission Deadline refers to your first submission for each project. In order to maintain good standing in the program and remain enrolled, you must submit your first submission for each project within one week of the project due date. (Note: This one-week buffer for project submissions is there to accommodate any technical difficulties, or other obstacles to submitting projects on time.)
Project Passing Deadline
A Project Passing Deadline refers to the date by which a Udacity Reviewer must mark your project submission as "Meets Specifications." In order to maintain good standing in the program, remain enrolled, and successfully graduate, you must pass each project within four weeks of the Project Submission Deadline. (Note: This four-week buffer for passing a project is to accommodate any technical difficulties, or other obstacles to submitting projects on time. Please be aware that you can submit your project as many times as you need to within the 4 week period.)
What are the consequences of not meeting a deadline?
Students who do not submit a project within 1 week of their Project Submission Deadline, or who do not pass their project within 4 weeks of their Project Submission Deadline, will no longer be in good standing in the program. This means you will no longer have access to any program services (such as mentorship or project reviews), and you will no longer be eligible to earn your Nanodegree credential. You will retain access to the program content (videos, quizzes, project instructions, etc.) for the remainder of the program duration.
If I miss a deadline, and lose my good standing in the program as a result, will I receive a refund?
We do not provide any refunds beyond the first 7-days. Please be sure you are ready and able to commit to the program time requirements before enrolling in the program.
Other Terms for DFND Program
Unlike other Udacity Nanodegree Programs, the DFND Program Program does not maintain monthly fee pricing, but is instead is provided in a structured term-based curriculum. The term is priced as a flat fee for the period. Pricing may change from time to time between terms but no future fee increase will apply to a student while that student is enrolled in a term.
Enrollees in the DFND Program Program have seven (7) days from the first date the Online Course begins in any individual segment to disenroll and request a full refund of the fees paid for the DFND Program After the seven (7) day period, the Program fees paid are non-refundable. You may elect not to enroll in further terms or segments at your option and the same seven (7) day disenrollment option shall apply to each future segments or termt. You must send an email to email@example.com for request of a refund.
For the DFND Program Program, you may not otherwise access free trial periods, or other general discounts, coupons or credits, unless a program-specific offer is made to you. If your DFND Program Program is paid for or sponsored by a third party, see the Sponsored Services portion of the Terms of Service for further details.
Further, because of the time-structured enrollment periods for the individual segments, the "pause" functionality in your Udacity Account shall also not be available.
