  • A Bachelor's degree earned at a four year, regionally-accredited institution.
  • For direct entrance into the Certificate program, applicants should provide evidence of coursework (or other experience) equivalent to the undergraduate courses Programming I and Programming II.
  • Applicants without the above experience can enroll in the Programming Boot Camp prior to the Certificate program.
  • Rolling Admissions. This program has no application deadline and applications are evaluated on a rolling basis. Completed applications are typically evaluated within 4 weeks of submission.

Application

  • Academic Transcripts: All applicants are required to submit one copy of official transcripts from each post-secondary institution attended. Official transcripts are defined as original documents issued by the institution that bear the actual signature of the Registrar -- not a photocopy -- and the seal of the issuing institution. Do not, however, send the original of an academic record that cannot be replaced; obtain a properly certified copy instead.
  • Cover Letter: Include a statement of purpose that details your past programming experience, why you are applying for this program, and how you expect this program to enable you to reach your career goals.
  • International students have additional requirements beyond the general application. For more information please visit the Graduate Admissions page. Resources are also available from the International Student Center.
