Note: Due to the course sequencing, it is highly unlikely a transfer student will be able to complete this program's requirements within the 5 year deadline. See an advisor for more details.

BSIS or BSIT Admissions Process

Important Information
It is imperative that once in the BS/MS program the student complete both degrees at the same time. If during the program the student decides to complete the undergraduate degree before the graduate degree, this will have billing ramifications and the student will need to withdraw from the dual degree program by sending an e-mail to her advisor. Furthermore, if the student wishes to continue graduate level courses, he/she would need to formally apply to the graduate program through graduate admissions.

Students applying to the College of Computing & Informatics' BS/MS program in BSIS or BSIT must:

  1. Complete the BS/MS application found on the CCI website under "Useful Forms."
  2. Meet with an academic advisor to determine a "Plan of Study" for the BS/MS program. Note: CCI policy states that students can not register for more than 20 credits per term unless they are a graduating senior.
  3. Obtain a letter of recommendation from at least one full-time CCI faculty member.
  4. Have completed foundation courses in their degree program by the end of the term in which application is made.

For the BSIS/BSIT, these courses are:

  • INFO 101 Introduction to Information Systems I
  • INFO 105 Introduction to Informatics
  • INFO 110 Human-Computer Interaction
  • INFO 200 Systems Analysis I
  • INFO 210 Database Management Systems

BSSE Admissions Process
Students applying to the College of Computing & Informatics' BS/MS program in BSSE must:

  1. Complete the BS/MS application found on the CCI website under "Useful Forms."
  2. Meet with an academic advisor to determine a "Plan of Study" for the BS/MS program. Note: CCI policy states that students can not register for more than 20 credits per term unless they are a graduating senior.
  3. Obtain two letters of recommendation from full-time faculty members from CCI.
  4. Have completed foundation courses in their degree program by the end of the term in which application is made.

For the BSSE, these courses are:

  • SE 101 Foundations of Software Engineering I
  • SE 102 Foundations of Software Engineering II
  • SE 103 Foundations of Software Engineering III
  • SE 210 Software Specification and Design I
  • SE 211 Software Specification and Design II
  • SE 310 Systems Architecture I
Note: Computer Science equivalent courses may be substituted for SE 101, 102, and 103.
