Admissions Requirements

To apply for the online MS in Cybersecurity degree 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 onlinecyber@yu.edu. We recommend this option as it is the quickest and easiest way. 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: Jordana Cohen
    500 West 185th Street
    New York, NY 10033

  • Evidence of at least one computer networking or computer security course, a related professional certification/licensure, or related work experience. This must be verifiable either by documentation or by interview with the admissions committee
  • Application fee: $50 (waivable by the university; connect with an Admissions 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

Provisional Admission to Katz

If you haven’t taken a computer networking or security course at the undergraduate or graduate level or worked in a role with networking or security responsibilities, you may still be granted provisional admission to the program pending completion of a bridge course. This course is designed to provide introductory cybersecurity material for career switchers who need to strengthen their background in the subject before moving on to the bulk of the program’s course content.
