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).
However, you do not need to have an IT background to seek admittance into the MSIT degree program — for those who lack specific IT experience, our four bridge courses will help bring you up to speed.
Our Admissions Office is happy to work with you to answer any questions you may have and help determine your eligibility.
