The program Purdue University offers in data science comes from Masters in Data Science Finance. For that, you have to meet certain requirements. You can label them as eligibility criteria, but the university takes them very seriously. So instead of other things, here you have to focus on the things mentioned by the university.

This is an actual presentation of the thighs Purdue University asks from its applicants to the master's in Data Science in Finance programs:

Admission Requirements

A bachelor's degree from an accredited institution
Cumulative GPA of 3.0 or equivalent
An applicant's prior education must include the following prerequisites: 

  • one semester of Linear Algebra
  • two semesters of Calculus (Limit, Differentiation, and Integral)

It is recommended that applicants show successful completion of the following undergraduate courses:

  • one semester of Probability
  • one semester of Statistics
  • one semester of Computer Programming
  • one semester of Multivariable Calculus

Strongly Recommended

Students who are strongly motivated and have demonstrated high aptitude may be admitted to graduate programs while they fill in background courses.

Along with the basic things like an undergrad degree and test scores, here you will also have to meet these specific subject requirements. Remember that these requirements are not flexible, and you will have to show excellence in given things. You can see that mathematics here is strongly asked in applicants' qualifications. Make sure you have everything.

After that, you can start the procedure on the official website page of the program. You will be required to apply, submit documents and answer a few questions there. After that, you hit submit and wait for the university to respond. It generally takes two to three weeks for the university to inform you of their decision. And that's it. Manage these things, and you are all set. If you have any more doubts, feel free to check with me.
