Applicants to the computing program are expected to have:

Students can be admitted to this program without these prerequisites, but they may be required either to take undergraduate courses or perform self-study to acquire the necessary background skills.

Admission deadlines

Decisions by the department are made when applications are complete. The Graduate School processes recommendations made by the department according to deadlines that they maintain and publish. Their deadlines for International students are extended to allow time for visa processing. For specific deadlines, look for Application Deadline in the description of the Computing program hosted by the Graduate School.

Application instructions

You apply to the Master of Science in Computing program by following the procedures for application to the Marquette University Graduate School.

As part of the online application process you will be asked to upload a resume/CV and documents describing career goals, professional and community activities, and a statement of purpose. In preparing these documents be sure to include information about relevant academic and work history as well as your computer background, especially if other materials might not make that clear. You can use the Career Goals section to describe any particular interests.

We use the documentation that you supply as an indication of your suitability for the program and your communication skills. If you are admitted, the information about your experience and goals will help us assign an appropriate advisor. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the computing program's director or the Graduate School office.

Transferring from EECE or Computational Sciences

You can transfer from EECE or Computational Sciences to the Master of Science in Computing program by completing the online application process of the Marquette University Graduate School. We expect that most current EECE or Computational Sciences students who apply to transfer to this program will be accepted. You should consider carefully with your advisor whether you might be better served by remaining in the current program.

Students transferring to computing from EECE or computational sciences will have the 12-credit maximum limit waived, and will be allowed to transfer any number of credits from their previous degree to computing. The courses to be transferred must be specifically appropriate to the computing degree, and such transfer will require approval of the Computing Graduate Committee. The courses to be transferred must have been taken as a degree student. Any courses taken as a temporary or non-degree student will still be limited to the 12-credit maximum. If the student has completed or is completing one degree, and wishes to apply some of those courses to a second master's degree, such transfer will be limited to the maximum of 12 credits, as is the current policy.

Students must complete the Transfer of CreditPDF icon form to accomplish any transfer. The form contains room for twelve credits. If you are transferring more than twelve credits you will need to use a second form to record the additional credits. The "Marquette University Graduate School Master's Degree Transfer of Credit Request" forms are also available from the Graduate School or from the EECE or MSCS departmental offices. Please return the completed forms to the Director of the program (drop off at the MSCS office, or use campus mail).
