ITM Undergraduates can now earn their Master’s while an undergrad…

July 30th, 2013 Comments off

Undergraduates in the Bachelor of Information Technology and Management degree can now complete a graduate degree simultaneously with their undergraduate degree, while maintaining their undergraduate status (and undergraduate financial aid!) In most normal circumstances, students can complete both degrees in five years of study, or in three years for many transfer students. To be eligible for the Co-Terminal Degree Program, students must:

  • be a full-time Undergraduate student at IIT
  • have completed at least 3 semesters as a full-time Undergraduate student or have 60 or more credit hours of Undergraduate course-work
  • have a minimum Undergraduate GPA of 3.25
    (This means that transfer students may not apply until during their second term at IIT and cannot commence their graduate studies until their third term)

The degree combinations currently available under this program are:

  • Bachelor of Information Technology and Management and Master of Cyber Forensics and Security
  • Bachelor of Information Technology and Management and Master of Information Technology and Management

We have a course matrix showing a sample program of study for each option. You may note that three courses are counted towards both the undergraduate and graduate degrees; in the BITM to MITM, they are all required undergraduate courses, but in the BITM to MCFS, there are some specific undergraduate electives that must be taken. For more details please see the Co-Terminal Degree information page at https://admissions.iit.edu/graduate/apply/co-terminal-degrees. To apply for the program, log in to the my.iit.edu portal, select the Academics tab and navigate to the Graduate Admissions – Student channel, then select the IIT Co-Terminal Degree Program Application hyperlink, or just click on the link right here.
