The Graduate School of the College of Computer and Information Science offers courses during the fall and spring semesters. A few summer courses may be offered. With careful planning, full-time students may be able to complete the M.S. program in three semesters. Full-time students with assistantships normally complete the program in two years. Part-time students usually elect one or two courses per academic semester and can complete the M.S. degree in two or three years.
Course credits earned in the program of graduate study or accepted by transfer are valid for a maximum of seven years unless an extension is granted by the Graduate Committee of the College of Computer and Information Science. Students should petition, in writing, to the Director of the Graduate School for such extensions.
