stack of documents icon Admission Requirements

Professionals who have a strong background in a computing discipline, hold IT certificates and/or have work experience in the field can be admitted directly into the online Master in Information Technology program (the GRE is waived for qualified candidates).

The University’s MSIT program is not just for experienced industry professionals.  Our program is open to people from a variety of backgrounds, though many already have experience in a computing discipline or hold an IT certificate.

If prospective students do not have a IT bachelor’s degree or an IT background, they can still seek admittance by taking 12 credit hours of bridge courses to help them qualify for the program.

Our Admissions Office is happy to work with you to answer any questions you may have and help determine your eligibility.
