With careful planning, you may be able to complete prerequisite courses at your undergraduate university. Contact the MSIS program to go over your prerequisite equivalency.
Applicants who live in the United States (regardless of citizenship) have two options:
- Take prerequisites at an AACSB- or ABET-accredited college or university. Contact the MSIS program office before class registration to ensure prerequisite equivalency.

The Jumpstart program is typically offered in mid-May for U.S. degree holders and early June for non-U.S. degree holders.
