The Master of Science in Computer Science and Information Systems admits students with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Information Systems, Information Technology or a closely related field with an earned grade point average (GPA) of at least a 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale). Conditional acceptance may be granted to candidates from other areas such as engineering, mathematics, physical science and business disciplines with the condition of having completed the necessary “ fast track ” courses at SVSU. The program coordinator would examine each candidate’s background to determine which fast track courses would be required to be completed. Exceptions to this policy would have to be discussed with the program coordinator to determine if conditional admission would be possible.
Disclaimer – Meeting the minimum admission criteria does not guarantee admission to this program. The program coordinator may turn down an application for any valid reason, e.g. the maximum enrollment capacity has been reached for a semester.
