Admission Requirements: Computer Science, M.S.

The Master of Science in Computer Science is principally designed for graduates of baccalaureate programs in computer science, engineering, operation research, mathematics and related areas. Students who are admitted to the program with insufficient background in mathematics or computer science may be required to take one or more of the following undergraduate prerequisite courses:

 

CSCI 130 Computer Organization

CSCI 120 Computer Programming I

CSCI 170 Introduction to Computer Architecture141

CSCI 180 Computer Programming II

CSCI 260 Data Structures

CSCI 330 Operating Systems

MATH 170 Calculus I

MATH 180 Calculus II

MATH 310 Linear Algebra

 

Note: that these are prerequisite courses for the master’s program in computer science and credits earned for these courses will not be counted toward the 36 credits required for the degree. Applicants must have at least a 2.85 GPA for full matriculation status. At the dean’s discretion, scores on the Graduate Record Examination, or other diagnostic tests, may be requested to assist in evaluation of the applicant’s credentials. Applicants who do not qualify for full matriculation may be admitted provisionally. Upon completion of twelve (12) graduate credits and satisfaction of prerequisite requirements, the student’s status may be reviewed for upgrade to full matriculation.

 

Graduates of foreign universities must:

1. take the Graduate Record Examination;

2. take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) examination if there is reason to question the applicant’s fluency in English.

 

Note: At the dean’s discretion, scores on the Graduate Record Examination or other diagnostic tests may be requested to assist in evaluation of a candidate’s credentials.

 

Transfer Credits

Up to six transfer credits from an accredited graduate program may be granted to students in this program for appropriate courses in which a minimum grade of B was earned.

 

Fellowships and Assistantships

Fellowships and teaching assistantships are available to qualified candidates. These financial aid opportunities are usually for a 10-month period and may include partial remission of tuition and fees.

Fall semester: June 1 for international applicants, July 1 for domestic applicants
