Admission

Graduate Admission

Applicants for the Master of Science degree in Computer Science (M.S.C.S.) normally possess a degree in computer science. However, a student with good preparation in some other field of engineering, mathematics, business, or science may qualify by taking appropriate additional undergraduate courses. Such courses normally do not count toward the graduate degree. A list of specific prerequisite courses for the M.S. in Computer Science degree is available in the graduate office or on the department's website.

Applicants must demonstrate evidence of aptitude for graduate work, as shown by suitable performance in undergraduate and any graduate course work, by aptitude test scores on the Graduate Record Examination, and by academic letters of reference.

 The application deadline for fall admission is March 1. For full consideration for fellowships and assistantships, a complete application packet should be submitted by January 1. The deadline for spring admission is October 1. See theGraduate Studies website for the application procedure and fees.
