    Admission Requirements

    Applicants for admission must have earned a four-year bachelors degree from an accredited institution with a minimum cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0/4.0. International applicants are required to submit a GRE score with a minimum score of 1200 (combined score for tests taken prior to Oct. 1, 2002) or 900 quantitative + verbal and 2.5 analytical writing (for tests taken on or after Oct. 1, 2002) and may be required to submit a TOEFL score. Admission as a non-degree student follows the university policy set forth in this bulletin.

    Students whose undergraduate degree is not in a computer-related area or who do not have significant experience or certifications in the information technology field will be required to demonstrate proficiency in undergraduate courses that are prerequisites for the graduate program. Proficiency may be demonstrated by taking and passing a written exam or taking and passing, with a grade of "B" or better, the pre-requisite undergraduate courses at IIT. Proficiency may also be demonstrated by presentation of documentation of equivalent training or certification; in this case waivers of the prerequisites may only be granted by the graduate adviser or the ITM Associate Director

    Current prerequisites for the Master of Cyber Forensics and Security include computer hardware and operating system literacy (ITMO 301 or ITMO 302 or equivalent coursework, certification or experience); an ability to program at a competent level using a contemporary programming language (ITMD 411); basic knowledge of networking concepts, protocols, methods and the Internet (ITMO 440); and the ability to create and administer databases using a modern database management system (ITMD 421). Students enrolled in undergraduate post-baccalaureate studies may take these courses as part of that program.
