Application Process for Domestic MS Degree

Application Process for Domestic Master's Degree Program

Domestic Students seeking enrollment to the Master's Degree Program at KSI Graduate School must have a four-years bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution. Applicants must also have an accumulated GPA of 2.75.
If an applicant's Bachelor's Degree is not related to Computer and Information Sciences, this will not deter his or her admission. Due to having an inadequate Computer Science Background, KSI Graduate School's Admission Council may make the decision that said applicant take up to four (4) prerequisite courses. These prerequisites will serve as the background an applicant needs to comprehend the Graduate level courses.
