Remedial Coursework for Graduate Admission
Conditional admission to the MITS program is possible for applicants who have neither relevant course work nor professional experience, and for applicants lacking a 3.0 GPA in their undergraduate studies. Those applicants who cannot demonstrate preparation for this field of study through relevant course work or professional experience, but who meet the other admission criteria, may be granted conditional admission to the program, if one of the following two criteria is met:
1. Applicants must agree to complete 9 undergraduate hours of Information and Telecommunication Systems course work, from the following:
- ITS 2140 Introduction to Information and Telecom Systems,
- ITS 2300 Data Networking,
- ITS 3020 Information and Telecom Policy I, or
- ITS 3100 Internet Applications and Network Systems.
Upon completion of these 9 hours of course work, with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher, the applicant will attain full admission status.
2. Applicants with substantial relevant industry experience who do not meet the 3.0 coursework requirement, but meet the other admission criteria may be granted conditional admission to the program. Upon completion of the first three courses in the core curriculum (ITS 6000, ITS 6002, and ITS 6250), with a cumulative GPA of 3.0, the applicant will attain full, or unconditional, admission status.
