Enter the program for $3,000 – $7,500.
No other university in the U.S. offers this low entry fee. Pay off the remaining tuition from your earnings during your internship.
The remaining program costs will be paid through a ‘Student Loan’ which you will be able to arrange after you receive a paid internship position.
Total cost is ~$46,000, which includes tuition, campus housing, meals and health insurance.
The average starting salary for training internships is currently $90,000 per year which makes the student loan repayments very affordable. The typical repayment amounts are $1,600 per month.
U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents
Almost all U.S. graduate students can get federal student loans covering the tuition, fees, housing, and meals, plus cash for expenses. Most of our students qualify for the entire program cost to be covered.

The Computer Professionals Program has been running for 25 years and is one of the largest and most successful Master’s in Computer Science Programs in the USA.
1. Academic Requirements
You must possess a 3-4 year undergraduate degree in Computer Science or a related subject from an accredited college or university with a GPA minimum of 3.0 out of 4.
With a grade point average below 3.0 your application will be considered if there is strong professional work experience as a software developer, or you have graduated from a top level university (as ranked on the world scale).
With a grade point average below 3.0 you might need to take the GRE general test and score at least 70% (158) on the quantitative section to be considered for admission to our MSCS program.
2. Work Experience
4-year degree graduates are required to have a minimum of 6 months IT work experience.
3-year degree graduates are required to have a minimum of 2-3 years IT work experience.
Note: Final year or graduating students with a high GPA and no work experience may apply.
3. Knowledge Level
You need to be familiar with one of these languages: C, C#, C++ or Java 8 or 9.
4. Good English Proficiency
You need to be able to read, speak and understand English well. Neither TOEFL nor IELTS are required. We do phone or Skype interviews to assess your English skills.
5. Data Science Track (Optional)
We now offer Data Science courses in the Software Development area.
6. Graduate Record Exam (GRE)
Although not required for most countries, we strongly encourage you to take the GRE general test. A high GRE score may decrease the initial amount international students are asked to pay upon enrollment. Also, taking the GRE increases the likelihood of internationals obtaining a student visa for our program.
GRE is required from all applicants from India, unless you have 2 years or more of paid professional programming work experience, and your GPA is above 3.0 (B average).
