Admission Requirements Individuals with an undergraduate degree with a minimum GPA of 3.0 are eligible to apply for the programs. Individual programs may have additional requirements. International students and non-native English speakers must meet additional requirements as prescribed by the Graduate Studies office.
Program Structure The programs are designed to allow completion by most individuals within a single academic year.

Other Information No more than one course with a grade of C (or lower) is allowed in any certificate program. Students who are admitted to the M.S. degree program in Computer Science may transfer credits for certificate courses to a relevant concentration in the M.S. program. Students currently in the M.S. degree program in Computer Science may also complete certificate programs as part of their studies.
