The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science also offers an accelerated program that would enable students to a earn a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degree as well as a Master of Computer and Information Science in 5 years. Students are eligible to apply after they have completed sixty credit hours in their undergraduate program, with at least 30 credit hours earned at CSU. Once admitted to the combined program, the student may complete up to 12 credit hours of graduate courses while enrolled in the undergraduate program. These 12 credit-hours count towards both the undergraduate degree and the graduate degree requirements, either as electives or as requirements. For more details, please refer to the department webpage https://www.csuohio.edu/engineering/eecs/5-year-bsms-accelerated-program.

 

Students who are accepted for an accelerated 4+1 program may apply or transfer a maximum of 12 graduate credit hours taken while an undergraduate. No additional graduate credit hours taken as an undergraduate may be applied or transferred to the graduate record.

A student is eligible to apply for the accelerated program if the following conditions are satisfied:

The student has been accepted as a CS major;

  • The student has completed at least 70 credit hours, at least 16 hours in CS and at least 30 credit hours earned at CSU;
  • The student has at least a junior standing at CSU; and
  • The student has a cumulative grade-point average of 3.25 or better and a minimum average of 3.25 in CIS courses.

In addition, students must apply to the accelerated MCIS program before the completion of 110 credit hours towards the BSCS degree, including transfer credits. Typically, such applications should be made at the end of the junior year. Also, admission to the Accelerated MCIS program does not require completion of GRE or equivalent tests.
