Welcome to the admissions overview. The purpose of the admissions office is twofold. First, to ensure that the students admitted to the Institute have a high probability of successfully completing the course requirements of the institution. Second to increase the probability that our graduates with a Master of Information Sciences in Information Security will be prepared to become leaders in the field of information security.
The Admissions office requires candidates for admission to demonstrate that they enjoyed adequate academic success at the undergraduate level, have professional experience in the security field, leadership ability, and the ability to write well.
We welcome telephone and email queries, but please take the time to read the requirements for admission before contacting us. They are complete and other students have been able to register for admission using these instructions. If you still have questions after reviewing these pages, please do not hesitate to drop us a note to email@example.com.
