Reading materials for certificate programs consist of textbooks and supplementary handouts. Textbook readings are considered preparatory in nature and are typically assigned prior to lectures; supplementary handouts are frequently distributed in class to provide additional information.

The tuition fee for this program is not included in the university's tuition package for full-time undergraduate students. The university's refund policy allows a return of 100% of tuition (minus a separate $25 registration fee) if the student drops the Web Development with Python Program by Tuesday, October 1, 2013.
