Students will be awarded the Graduate Certificate in Computer Security and Information Assurance after completion of four courses in the program, each with a minimum grade of a B, as described in the Certificate Requirements.

Continuation to one of the Master’s (MS) Programs

Students who are enrolled in or have completed the certificate program may choose to continue their graduate studies and apply to the MS in Computer Science or the MS in Cybersecurity in Computer Science. Students accepted to either MS program may transfer all credits earned from the Graduate Certificate program.

Completion of the Graduate Certificate program is not an implied acceptance in the MS programs. Students who wish to move on to the Master’s level must apply to one of the two MS programs in the Department of Computer Science.

Students may not be simultaneously enrolled in the MS and certificate programs.
