Admissions Requirements

We recognize that technical experts working in Cybersecurity have diverse academic and professional backgrounds. Therefore, our admissions requirements allow for diversity but also must ensure that qualified students are prepared to succeed in this highly technical academic program. We offer three levels of admission depending upon the academic background, academic performance, and professional experience of the applicant.

  • ALL LEVELS: All applicants are expected to have successfully completed ENEE 150, Intermediate Programming Concepts for Engineers or an equivalent course prior to admission.
  • Full Admission: Applicants must have a bachelor's degree in Engineering, Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, or Physics, from an accredited institution, with a GPA of 3.0 or better.
  • Provisional Admission: Applicants who have a degree in a closely related field of study (i.e. Information Technology, Information Assurance, Computer Information Systems), and a GPA of 3.0 or better must also possess at least one (1) of the following certifications: CompTIA Security+, GIAC GSEC, or Certified Ethical Hacker certification. Applicants admitted with Provisional Admission will need to complete two core courses with at least a B or better in each course.
  • Non-Degree-Seeking (GRAD): Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree, GPA of 3.0 or better, in other fields of study closely related to information technology, information assurance, or computer information systems, one of the above mentioned certifications, and at least two years of post-graduate work experience in IT or a related field. To qualify for this admission, applicants must submit a detailed description of their technical work experience as a personal statement attached to the Supplementary Application section of the application. This option is based on an individual's application.
    Applicants admitted as non-degree-seeking students will need to complete two core courses with at least a B or better in each course in order to be considered for provisional admission later.
