Required score: 2.85

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 2.85 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

General Requirements

  • B.S. degree or its equivalent from an accredited college or university in computer science, engineering, management, mathematics, information technology, liberal arts, and related areas.
    • If you have a degree in engineering, an accredited program is one that is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
    • If you have completed degrees in computer science or a closely related field, an accredited program is one taken at a college that is regionally accredited, such as the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
  • Minimum undergraduate GPA of 2.85 for full matriculation.
