In addition to the admission requirements of the Graduate School, admission to the Master of Science degree program in computer science requires official GRE scores as well as a bachelor's degree in computer science, computer or electrical engineering, math, physics, or a related field of study.

Students admitted to the program are expected to have knowledge of certain computer science topics, including computer architecture, programming languages, operating systems, and database management systems.

Learn more about the admission requirements for the master’s in computer science program, including prerequisites, through the School of Computing & Informatics.


Because courses in this program will only be available online, the program may not be available to all applicants. The University of Louisiana at Lafayette and its online programs must be in compliance in every state where a student is located. (Visit the Graduate Admissions page to learn more.) International students also may not be eligible. According to U.S. immigration regulations, F-1 students cannot pursue online degrees; international students in other visa categories (i.e., H-4, L2) are exempt from this restriction.
