Cybersecurity Degree Admissions Requirements

To apply for the online master’s in cybersecurity program, you must possess a four-year bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher (on a 4.0 scale). You must also submit the following in order to be considered for admission:

  • Completed online application
  • Unofficial transcripts from academic institutions where nine or more credits were earned can be submitted via the online application to start the review process. If admitted, official transcripts provided directly from academic institutions where nine or more credits were earned must be submitted no later than one month prior to the first day of class via email to We recommend this option as it is the quickest and easiest way for institutions to submit transcripts. If your academic institutions can only submit the transcript via mail, please have the sealed copies of official transcripts sent to:
Yeshiva University - Graduate Enrollment Management Office
Attn: Martha DeCaille
500 West 185th Street
New York, NY 10033

  • Application fee: $50 (waivable by the university; connect with an admissions outreach advisor for more information)
  • Resume/CV
  • Personal statement
  • Students who completed their undergraduate studies at an international institution may be required to submit English language proficiency scores (TOEFL or IELTS); these scores should be from within the last two years
  • Applicants who have been awarded a bachelor’s and/or graduate degree from an international higher education institution outside of the United States or a non-English speaking Canadian institution will need to submit a course-by-course NACES transcript evaluation including all official transcripts confirming the degree is equivalent to U.S. standards. An applicant’s international credentials will not be reviewed for admission consideration until a transcript evaluation is completed. All transcripts will need to be submitted from each institution where nine or more credits were earned. If admitted, all official course-by-course transcripts and official transcript evaluations and unofficial transcripts are due before the first day of class.
