MS Computer Science - Degree Requirements
The Master of Science with Major in Computer Science program offers both thesis and non-thesis options. Both options require a minimum of 30 credits.
Students must satisfy all of the University graduate requirements. In addition, the following requirements must be met:
- Must have a GPA of 3.0 (out of 4.0) or better.

Any transfer credits toward the requirements for a master's degree in Computer Science must be approved by the Department, the College and the University. The transfer credits must correspond to equivalent requirements and performance levels expected for the degree. Normally no more than 6 credits of coursework (that have not been applied to a degree) can be transferred from another institution.
