Students can be admitted to the MSOL Program either in the Fall or Spring term. The Fall application deadline is May 15th; the Spring application deadline is December 1st. The Area Director of your chosen area will be your Faculty Advisor. Please contact the Area Director with questions regarding technical content and prerequisites needed.
Our admission criteria is based on your undergraduate GPA in an ABET accredited science or engineering program, in conjunction with other evidence of your ability to succeed in highly technical graduate courses. This includes factors such as work experience in the chosen area of study and graduate courses completed with good grades in the chosen area of study.
Students must have a broadband connection (cable, fiber or DSL) in order to view lectures. For additional student computer requirements, please visit our frequently asked questions page.
You may take our online courses through University Extension (UNEX), even if you are not in the degree program. Up to two UNEX courses can be transferred into the degree program if you later decide to apply and are admitted to the degree program. Please see the UNEX page for more information.
