Applicants must hold an earned bachelor’s degree in any field from an accredited four-year college or university, and must submit an official transcript showing a conferred degree. If an undergraduate degree is still in progress, an official copy of the most up-to date transcript is acceptable. Applicants do not need to hold a degree from a computer science-related field, however, applicants must have a minimum level of knowledge (See the program director for details). Applicants must also submit two letters of recommendation which can be academic or professional. All applicants to the M.S. in Cybersecurity are required to have a BCI check (criminal background check) completed from their state of residence as part of the application process. A copy of the BCI is all that is required to be submitted. Students who need assistance with this process should contact RWU. While application materials do not need to be sent in one complete package, a complete application to this graduate program includes the following required materials:

  • Completed online application
  • $50 application fee
  • Official and original transcripts from all undergraduate institutions attended
  • 2 letters of recommendation
  • Criminal background check (BCI check) from state of residence (Applicants who need assistance with this process should contact the Office of Graduate Admission)
