Information Systems Security Admission Requirements

     The B.S. degree in Information Systems Security is offered in both an on-campus and an online format. Formal application to the degree is required for admission. In addition to the materials required for general admission, applicants to the B. S. in Information Systems Security degree program must submit the Statement of Purpose form (https://illinois.edu/fb/sec/8834440). Students whose native language is not English must meet the Basic Entrance Requirement for English Language Proficiency. Enrollment in CSC 305 Entrance Assessment is required during the first semester.

     Entrance requirements for transfer students include the equivalent of two semesters of Java programming and one semester each of business calculus or calculus, discrete or finite mathematics, and statistics. Though it is preferred that online students already have completed program entrance requirements, online and on-campus students may take CSC 225, CSC 275, MAT 113 or MAT 115, MAT 114 or MAT 302, and MAT 121 at UIS to satisfy these requirements. Students must complete the Java Programming and Discrete/Finite Mathematics requirements prior to enrolling in upper-division core computer science classes. Twelve of these hours may be counted toward the degree as general electives. Students considering an advanced degree or a career in a scientific field are strongly encouraged to take a second semester of calculus.
