Are the admissions requirements for masters degree programs in College of William and Mary different than any other program ?


I’m married and don’t have kids yet, so I think it’s a good decision to pursue my masters now before starting a family. A little bit about myself, I completed my bachelors degree in IT a couple years ago. Since then, I’ve been working as an IT consultant. I realized that just having an undergraduate degree with a couple years of experience will not get me too far in this career. I’m aiming to get a higher position, so I have a more stable income.

After assessing how much I make, getting a master’s degree seems like a great option. I’ve also done some research in universities and colleges with MS computer science and engineering programs. In reference to my life, it’s best if I get into College of William and Mary’s MS program. Now, I wanted to see if someone can help me with specifying any admission requirements for this college. Also, is there any difference between the requirements of computer science masters program and any other program? Is there a GRE score requirement?

What other master’s degree programs are you looking into? Sometimes there are graduate programs who ask for portfolios or for you to take a specific GRE subject test. For instance, you may be looking to get into the design graduate program, you would need to provide a portfolio of the previous things you’ve done to show the admissions committee.

Other than that, you’ll just need the general requirements including your transcripts, letters of recommendation, GRE score, and application form.

Good luck!
