Accelerated BS/MPS Cybersecurity Program Admissions Requirements
Our Accelerated BS/MPS programs are rigorous and demanding, so interested students should become familiar with the admissions and program requirements, which are outlined below.
- Must be a junior or senior at UMBC
- Minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.0.
- Must maintain satisfactory academic standing throughout the duration of your undergraduate degree.
Students from outside the College of Engineering and Information Technology (COEIT) are eligible to apply to the Accelerated Bachelors/MPS CYBR program via the Cybersecurity Strategy and Policy option. If admitted, you may take CYBR 620, 621, 622, and/or 623 to begin your graduate cybersecurity studies while still an undergraduate student. Non-COEIT students who believe they are qualified to pursue more technical cybersecurity opportunities should contact the CYBR GPD to discuss their interests.
